Residents of the UK can now use a new DNA testing service launched this week by 23andMe that provides everything you need to carry out a DNA by post.
Once the test is complete the DNA service allows users to browse and download their raw genetic data and if you have been genotyped, your raw data will be available in your online account. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the DNA testing service that just launched in the UK.
“Find out how your genetics relate to things like abnormal blood clotting, cystic fibrosis or response to certain medications. You can also see if your body metabolises caffeine quickly or if you’re likely lactose intolerant.
We believe the more you know about your DNA, the more you know about yourself.
Keep in mind that many conditions and traits are influenced by multiple factors. Our reports are intended for informational purposes only and do not diagnose disease or illness.
Because genetic information is hereditary, knowing something about your genetics also tells you something about those closely related to you. Your family may or may not want to know this information as well, and relationships with others can be affected by learning about your DNA.”
For more information on the new DNS service jump over to the 23andMe website for details and to sign-up.
