Does This Impact Apps in Sequencing.com's DNA App Store?
Good news! The apps in Sequencing.com's marketplace work perfectly and are not impacted by this change. Because Sequencing.com's Universal Compatibility technology did not use 23andMe's API, you can continue to use all of the apps in our marketplace without any issue or interruption.
How Does the 23andMe API Change Impact Developers?
As reported by genomeweb, if you are an app developer that that has built on top of the 23andMe Genetic API, the change may have adversely impacted your app's ability to securely access DNA data from 23andMe.
Don't worry because we offer a similar solution to help get your app back up and running.
An Alternative Genetic API from Sequencing.com
Sequencing.com's Real-Time Personalization (+RTP) API includes a Universal Genetic Data API. Using our API, we can send raw genetic data (genotypic data) to apps in the same JSON or txt format that 23andMe used to provide. Even better, you will no longer be limited to just 23andMe data because our +RTP API works with DNA data from all DNA tests including all consumer testing companies, laboratories and both exome and whole genome sequencing services.
For example, our API works with DNA data from 23andMe, Ancestry, Family Tree DNA, MyHeritage, Helix, Dante Labs, Living DNA, Vitagene and all other genetic testing companies.
