Phenotypic information for each genome is included in the database and can be searched by using the text search.
There are two types of phenotypic information:
- Obtained through genetic interpretation of the genome, which currently includes analyzing the risk and carrier status for over 2,000 monogenic phenotypes.
- Multigenic phenotypic analysis will be added in the near future, including the specific variants and algorithm used to generate the risk prediction.
- This includes extension cancer risk and Alzheimer’s risk assessment including analysis of BRCA1, BRCA2, BRAF, APOE, etc.
- Obtained from the questions asked of the person who donated the genetic data to the Altruist Database. Questions about phenotype are asked on an on-going basis and are voluntary.
