A genetic DNA map for the holidays? 23andMe.

Boot Camp feature for Monday, December 14, 2015

How about giving a genetic DNA map for the holidays?    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   23andMe is a company that has pioneered the field of home genetic DNA testing.   Purchase a kit for about two hundred dollars….send in a saliva sample….and get a wealth of information in return.  Not just about your DNA ancestry…but about wellness traits and genetic disease markers as well.    And the information is updated as new research progresses.   VP Emily Drabant-Conley….

“So science is constantly evolving and as new research happens and as we get new reports approved through the FDA, we’re then able to provide that information back to our customers.”

23andMe is the only test approved by the FDA to provide both health and ancestry data.  As a gift, it can be interesting and even fun…

You can really share and compare with different friends and relatives.  It’s a really unique gift.   I mean what could be more personalized than learning about your very own DNA.”
