• Lactose intolerance

    IDEA In this post, I will: briefly introduce lactose intolerance, and guide you to the myDNA lactose intolerance analysis. What is lactose intolerance? The ability to digest lactose as an adult is called lactase persistence. Opposite to it, a digestive disease caused by lactose malabsorption is called lactose intolerance. Lactose...

  • How likely are you to develop type 2 diabetes

    Important: Make sure to have your genotyped genome saved in a folder onto your computer. What is type 2 diabetes? Overview Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way your body metabolizes sugar (glucose) — an important source of fuel for your body. With type 2 diabetes,...

  • What is DNA?

    Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a molecule composed of two chains that coil around each other to form a double helix carrying genetic instructions for the development, functioning, growth and reproduction of all known organisms and many viruses. DNA and ribonucleic acid (RNA) are nucleic acids; alongside proteins, lipids and complex...

  • How likely you are of having twins?

    Here is a step-by-step guide to find it out Info: Make sure to have your genotyped genome saved in a folder onto your computer. The likelihood of conceiving twins is a complex trait. It is probably affected by multiple genetic and environmental factors, depending on the type of twins. The...

  • Lactose Intolerance

    Step-by-step guide to check whether risk allele for lactose intolerance can be found in your genome Info: Lactose Intolerance is primarily linked to SNPs found in the introns of the MCM6 gene, which is associated with the LCT gene located thousands of base pairs away. In 77% of Europeans: rs4988235...

  • Analyzing your DNA

    ANALYZING YOUR DNA HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT KINDS OF DISEASES YOU HAVE THE CHANCE TO HAVE, OR blablabla I was shocked when I have red that there are more than 26 million people who have already done professional genotyping test at a popular company, while I have never even...

  • Introduction to my.DNA

    Welcome to my.DNA We enable you to analyze your own DNA! How is this possible? Our group decided that we wanted to make a open source program so people can educate themselves about their DNA. Ater you do the genotyping you get raw data consists of SNPs and alleles that...
