When it comes to health and fitness, there are so many products and fads out there. Let's explore how whole genome sequencing is different.

Before we dive into the details of whole genome sequencing, you might want to learn about the history of genetics. Once you're up to speed, we can explore some common questions below.

What can I learn from sequencing my genome?

What can I learn from sequencing my genome?

When we sequence and interpret your genome, you'll receive:

  1. Clinically relevant findings (we screen for over 1,200 conditions)
  2. A full pharmacogenomics (PGx) report explaining your genetically-influenced response to certain medications.
  3. Your carrier status for a number of conditions you could pass on, even if you don't have symptoms yourself. 
  4. Lifestyle attributes for things like athleticism, metabolism and more.
  5. Ancestry details.

What health conditions and traits do you report on?

We report on many health conditions and traits for which there is clinical evidence and that are largely attributed to genetic factors. You can learn more about lists of conditions and traits on the myGenome product information page.

Why would you consider sequencing your genome?

Think of your genome as your genetic blueprint. It can help you make better decisions about your health, today and in the future.

As research unlocks new information about genetics, we can refer back to your genome. You will never have to be retested. 

"The whole experience was really fascinating. It’s good to get an impression of where your abilities are coming from and also what risks you may
face in the future."

— William Trubridge, 37, New Zealand

 

“I felt a little bit like a pioneer - excited and nervous at the same time. In the end, I’m very happy I did it!”

— Kim, 60, New Hampshire, Veritas Customer

 

"I want to be on the vanguard. I am empowering myself by learning about my genes and making health decisions based on my personal genetics." 

— Larry, 47, San Diego, Veritas Customer
