Genome Explorer Premium Benefits

Genome Explorer Premium makes it easy to unlock your DNA

Genome Explorer Premium is the most advanced version of Genome Explorer. It is truly a Google for your DNA, as it gives you everything you need to make independent discoveries about your own genome.  

Using Premium is easy. You don’t need specialized genetics knowledge. In fact, Genome Explorer Premium is optimized to help you explore your DNA and learn about the genetic conditions you’re interested in no matter the level of your genetics understanding. It includes all the column data available in Genome Explorer Plus, as well as two highly useful additions: Risk Version and Your Status.

Access to Genome Explorer Premium comes with either the Premium Genome Plan or the Professional Genome Plan.

How does Genome Explorer Premium work?

Let’s see how useful the “Risk Version” and “Your Status” columns can be.

An easy way to search your genome for disease-related variants or variants that are considered possible risk factors is to choose “Your Status” as your search filter and then select as many as you want from the 18 possible status categories in the search field—everything from “detected” to “possible increased risk” to “no impact.” Genome Explorer Premium will pull up the gene variants that fulfill the category criteria.

To understand the findings, you may want to look at the following columns:

  • Your Status: This column shows your status for each variant. Depending what categories you chose to search on, you may see a range of variant statuses that cover everything from “detected” to “increased risk” to “not detected.”
  • Condition: This column clearly states the condition a variant is associated with, so you can easily see and understand what health issue you may be faced with.
  • Classification: Each variant is given one of five possible condition classifications that will let you know how likely it is to cause a condition of concern. The classifications are: pathogenic, likely pathogenic, likely benign, benign, or uncertain significance.
  • Risk Version: This is the nucleotide base sequence at that position that is associated with the condition.
  • Your Data: This column shows you what variant you have at that position on your genome. By comparing it to the Risk Version, you can easily see if they match.

What if I want help interpreting my results?

Genome Explorer Premium can help you explore your genome and begin to understand the information contained in you DNA. At the same time, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed by the information or concerned about the long-term impact of a particular variant you carry. In this case, you may want to turn to a genetic counselor, a specialized healthcare provider trained in both genetics and counseling.

You can access professional, online genetic counseling via the Genetic Counseling app which you’ll find in’s marketplace. The app allows you to speak with a licensed genetic counselor regarding your results.
