WILL YOU SHARE MY DATA WITH ANYONE?
What technology will you use to sequence my genome
We will use ultra-low coverage whole genome sequencing pioneered by Gencove. Check Pasaniuc et al. (2012) for the technical details.
WILL I HAVE ACCESS TO MY RAW DATA?
Absolutely. We will provide aligned sequenced reads in BAM format.
WILL THIS TEST INFORM ME ABOUT MY GENETIC SUSCEPTIBILITY TO ANY DISEASE?
No. This test is not designed to provide any clinically relevant or actionable results.
Do you accept participants living outside USA?
Not yet. But we plan to make the test available in India and rest of South Asia very soon. Stay tuned!
WILL MY RESULTS GET UPDATED with the new REFERENCE Genotype Panel for South Asian population?
The initial results you will receive will be based on current state of knowledge regarding genetics of South Asia. After we establish the new reference genotype panel for South Asian population we will send you the updated results that will shed more light on your ancestry and origins. You will get updated results every time we refine the reference panel.
