DNA Raw Data Analysis for Better Health Outcomes


Mohammed S and Rub A

The advent of low-cost sequencing and genotyping technologies has made DNA data widely accessible to individuals. Ancestry DNA tests (from companies like 23andMe, Ancestry DNA, Family Tree DNA etc.) continue to be one of the most popular genetic tests in this space. Over 15 million genetic tests have been sold so far by ancestry genetic testing companies. These companies also empower the end consumer by sharing their raw DNA data with them. While predicting ancestry and haplogroups (Mt and Y) is just one component of doing the test, the more actionable applications of having raw DNA data lie in the area of health, wellness, nutrition, fitness, precision medicine and more.
