23andMe’s Research model invites customers to participate and help to accelerate genetic discoveries that offer the potential for new insights into treatments for disease.
Formally launched last year as one of several initiatives to expand diversity in genetics research, 23andMe’s Populations Collaborations Program supports researchers working with understudied populations from locations as wide-ranging as...Read More
23andMe is inviting qualified researchers for collaborations using 23andMe’s large African American and Latino cohorts as part of our Research Innovation Collaborations Program to aid more study of underrepresented populations.Read More
In the largest genetic study to date on Polycystic ovary syndrome, a leading cause of female infertility, an international team of scientists using data from more than 100,000 women including data from consenting 23andMe customers, found new genetic associations for the condition and further evidence of its associations with metabolic disorders, menopause, and depression.Read More
To learn more about the genetics of ice cream consumption and taste preference, 23andMe researchers found genetic associations near genes in the olfactory receptor family as well as surprising associations with genes that influence preferences for milk chocolate or dark chocolate.Read More
23andMe's Global Genetics Project aims to enroll more than 10,000 people over two years from communities in Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas, who are not currently well represented in genetic research. The data will help diversity 23andMe’s database and thus improve results for our customers; it will also boost genomic studies in underrepresented populations worldwide.Read More
