I have wanted to try 23 and Me for a while now and completed it on the advice of my kinesiologist. It really gave me insight into some genetic connections with a gene I have that was passed down through my European side of the family. Furthermore, I found cousins all over the world and found connections I didn't even know existed!
One of the greatest this that you can do if you don't know anything about your lineage. Takes a while to get back though and isn't broken down as thoroughly as some of the other options for DNA testing.
I am amazed by the information I received from 23&Me! All my life I never knew that I was a part of all these other nationalities/races. The finished report is very detailed and thorough, I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about their heritage. Shipping was quick, and the results were available in a few weeks.
I got 23andme as a birthday present for my boyfriend, and he loved it so much that he bought an account for me and his best friend as well! The service is super easy to use, and there are several 3rd party sites that will sort and categorize your SNP results. If you're interested in the genetic basis of your personality/health/life, I can't recommend it enough.
Easy to understand the directions and take the sample needed. I did it for my adopted son and he is 1 year old. I am still waiting for results but the kit came in the mail quickly after ordering it and I was able to watch a video of what happens to my son's sample after collection which was very interesting. I'm looking forward to my results.
Ordered this as a gift for my father in-law. The kit is very self explanatory and easy and he results take about 2 weeks. It was interesting to see the results it I felt that we didn't get enough insight into his background-it felts very general so although he received interesting information, it wasn't as specific as I would have lied it to be
I have connected with family that I didn't even know existed. I like getting all the medical reports. It helps prove that in an the way that I am because of my genes. The reports are easy to understand and you can share them with your doctor and other family members.
I love all the information you get with your reporting! For me however the results took a really long time (8 weeks), but for friends I've referred it only took a few weeks. It's interesting to "Meet" family and other relatives. I was super interested in the product since my mother was adopted and my dad's family was primarily immigrants.
This is so fascinating! I submitted my DNA to them 2 years ago, and they were able to map out where my original ancestors were from, the exact percentages of my ancestry, and they continue to "DNA match" me with people across the globe. Amazing!
I have always been facinated with my ancestrt, and finally having difinitive evidence of my heratage is really neat. I really like the feature they added that shows about how far back you had a family member that was 100% of one ethnicity. The health information is interesting, but hasn't revealed anything too exciting to me. Totally worth it.
Q & A
Is really worth the money ?
Is there anyway I could get this for free and review it? I have heard nothing but good things!
Always wanted to try one of these similar products....worth it?
Has anyone tried their DNA tests? How does it compare to AncestryDNA? Do you get the ancestry analysis along with the breakdown of genetic predispositions (more likely to need more sleep, have curly hair, like coffee, be good at running, etc) or is it one or the other?
What are your personal experiences?
