Six months ago, we announced our Exome 80X pilot project. At 23andMe, we’ve carefully followed every advance in sequencing technologies and read every paper comparing them, waiting for the opportunity to offer a meaningful and affordable option to the consumer market. While other (expensive) offerings have been available for some time, we’ve seen that consumers have been waiting for this opportunity, too.
Today, we delivered our first batch of exome data to the earliest project participants. There are many more still being sequenced and processed, but this is an exciting milestone in the development of our platform. We’re proud to share this moment with our pilot customers, many of whom are experts in their own right, and hope to learn as much in the coming months from their personal experiences with the data as we are learning from ours.
As more participants get their data, we encourage everyone* (exome or not) to join the discussion in our exome community.
