Discover how your DNA influences your traits,
and how the DNA from you and your partner might
combine in the next generation of your family.

Understanding DNA

We are born with two copies of every gene because we inherit one copy from each from our parents. The two different versions of each gene interact to make each of us a unique combination of our parents’ genetic information. Some traits, like eye color, are impacted greatly by a relatively small number of genes. Other traits, like height, result from the complex combination of thousands of genes that each individually contribute a small amount. Most traits are also influenced by a person’s environment, lifestyle decisions, and other genetic factors that we don’t yet understand.

Our patent-pending approach to using machine learning and neural networks to create the most accurate polygenic risk scores is at the heart of our platform.

Striking a balance

Genetics, Environment and Chance

Take a look in the mirror. You are the result of an unknowable billions of chained interactions that occur in your body. You are the breathing representation of all factors that influence who you are, whether it’s your DNA, the choices you make, your ancestral roots, or the many areas we are only beginning to explore.

We interpret your DNA, but don’t be fooled by how much environment and chance can play a part – past, present, and future.
