Santa’s genome is a 'virtual genome' developed by Sequencing.com’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
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)
Very long lifespan
Full head of white hair
