Get a snapshot of your genes.

A DNA test compares a sample of your genetic material against known genetic sequences, based on established scientific and medical research. Our certified on-site lab analyzes these comparisons to generate your personalized profile.

Genes Snapshot

Look behind the science.
Your genetic material, called DNA, looks like a long twisted ladder.
Each rung of the ladder is composed of molecules called nucleotides.
These nucleotides are: adenine (A), thymine (T), cytosine (C), and guanine (G).
The nucleotides are arranged in “codes” that form the blueprint of you.
Your entire genetic code contains around 3 Billionnucleotide pairs.
99.9% of your DNA code sequences are identical to those of every other person.
nine-person
Just 0.1% varies between people.
That difference is what makes us unique.
A DNA test compares your DNA code sequences against a giant library of traits and conditions.
There are code sequences for hundreds of thousands of things, from lactose intolerance to aptitude for learning.
The results you receive from your DNA test depend on what it is looking for.
For example, the Orig3n
FITCODE test looks at
different gene sequences that may influence your fitness potential, from muscle endurance to recovery.

Find out what a DNA Test can — and can't do.

Check mark

Provide clues about your body and mind.

It’s nice to find out what makes your body react the way it does. Have the gene for lactose intolerance? That’s probably why you feel uncomfortable after drinking a milkshake.

Check mark

Determine who you are.

The genetic code for a particular trait or condition is only one influence among many. So if your genes predispose you to lower-than-average muscle strength, that doesn’t prevent you from training to build strength. Your genes are no match for consistent, dedicated effort.

Check mark

Help you make better choices.

Knowing more about your genes helps you tailor your lifestyle to what suits you best. For instance: If you metabolize caffeine more slowly than the norm, you’ll want to watch your daily intake to keep your blood pressure and anxiety levels in check.

Check mark

Predict your exact future.

A DNA test is not a diagnosis. Think of it instead as an analysis of your risks: If you have a gene for a particular disease, condition, or trait, it means you have only a higher-than-average chance of developing it.

Check mark

Hint at what might lie ahead.

Your genes can help you see what might lie ahead. For example, if you have the gene for faster-than-average skin aging, you can take extra good care of it now to help offset that genetic influence.

Check mark

Tell you what to do next.

Since a DNA test is not a diagnosis, you should be cautious in how you interpret the results. While you may not have the gene for high sun sensitivity, don’t throw out your sunscreen! The sun is still a carcinogen, and you should always use common sense.

Together we can advance the future of health.

With our Nobel Prize-winning technology, we have the potential to bring hope to people with conditions that are currently beyond repair. Regenerative medicine is the process of generating human tissue to heal damaged tissues and organs. Our research team is working to help make these treatments available faster. So how do you fit in?

Visit an event and donate a half teaspoon of blood.

We’ll add it to our human cell bank — the world’s largest — and our researchers will use it to develop and test regenerative medicine treatments.

Today, when you send us your DNA swab, you're automatically opted out from sharing your genetic information with us. That information is encrypted and sent back to you and you alone: we don't use it for any reason. That's just one way we respect and prioritize your privacy.

In the coming month, we'll provide ways for you to opt in to support science (but the default setting will remain opted out). When that opportunity arises, we'll tell you what it means, and how you can help.
