23andMe’s Research At ASHG 2014

Geneticists from all over the world have converged in San Diego this week as part of the American Society of Human Genetics annual meeting. 23andMe_Logo_blogA team of scientists from 23andMe joined the thousands of geneticists in attendances to present some of our own research. Below are links to some of the posters presented.In addition, 23andMe also gave previews of our new “Research Portal,” which will allow qualified researchers to access aggregated, anonymized 23andMe data from our 600,000 genotyped individuals who have given consent for research under an Independent Review Board approved protocol. By offering access to 23andMe’s unique research model, we believe we can help accelerate research and fuel discoveries. Below are the list of some of the 23andMe posters presented at ASHG with links to PDFs versions of the posters.

    What about making a list about the SNP found in the crying study? So we can check up which snp genotype have which odds for crying! This was interesting. You have done the same with these Snps which have an influence on the risk of alzheimer. You have created table with these SNP on 23andme Blog. I wished there was the same with the crying SNPs.
