Fascinating! Yes... that is the word for it. With Science we can learn so much. I am so pleased that I live in a time where this is open and readily available to the public. You can learn so much. Besides something that can be a novelty. it can be quiet helpful too on many levels
Love the opportunity 23&me gives you to participate in studies and to share your info so that more can be understood about genes. 23&me give you information regarding your ancestry, health, genetic markers for diseases. You also have the ability to download your raw data to learn even more about your genes.
this was so much fun to look at! from genealogy to physical things it was spot on! it was surprising that it could tell my caffeine habits to how active I tend to be to which fingers tend to be longer. it is very in depth and I think anyone who's interested its this should try it
We got this for my dad for his birthday and we just found out that my dads side of the family is almost complete Spanish --- and he thought he was German--- lol and we also found out that my mom is almost all the way Italian
I have just mailed back my sample and they received it already. I do not have my results at of today but I have done a lot of investigating on the company and product they give. I could not be any happier at this time. I do not know my father and can not wait to find out my results
I think this service is absolutely FANTASTIC. They offer a DNA screening and a health screening so you can see what sorts of medical problems you might face in the future or be a carrier for. While I was using Ancestry dot com to track my family tree, I much prefer this company's DNA test to Ancestry's.
My results were ready in about six weeks after sending in my sample. The reports are easy to use and understand. I was more interested in the ancestry part over the traits, but it was interesting to find out I'm not a carrier for any of the diseases they can test for.
I recently completed a 23 and me kit and was so excited to learn about my DNA! The online profile they create of you is really interesting and if you don't know much about your family history it's very informative. I would definitely recommend to others.
SOOOOOOOOOO impressed with the results from 23andMe. I had my Ancestry and the Health check and the results were phenomenal. Really in depth reports on ancestry even going back to Neanderthal haplogroups! Would recommend this product over and over again!
My brother just bought this to see if we were more than just Italian and we found out we were more things that we didn't expect, but we wish they were more specific in some categories. A little pricy but worth it. Also got our results in a little over 3 weeks which is great
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?
