The Short Santa App Story

Santa’s genome is a 'virtual genome' developed by’s Bioinformatics Team! 

What's a virtual genome? It's a genome we created using algorithms that define a person with all of the traits we know and love about Santa.

We also added DNA sequences from various populations that Santa is thought to have originated from, including Norwegian, Finnish and Turkish populations.

Below are some of the traits that were used to create Santa’s genome:

  • Packed on a few pounds

  • Optimistic

  • Jolly

  • A Saint (always nice and never naughty)

  • A people pleaser

  • Extremely productive throughout the night

  • Enjoys carbs and sweets

  • Incredibly strong (carrying that giant sack of toys)

  • Risk-taker (sliding down chimneys)

  • Amazing stamina

  • Very long lifespan

  • Wears glasses

  • Full head of white hair 


Getting Started

This app is compatible with most DNA tests including 23andMe, AncestryDNA, and MyHeritage.
