Traitwell has partnered with Nebula Genomics to bring you whole genome sequencing. Shipping is free worldwide.GET SEQUENCED
Whole genome sequencing analyzes much more of your genome than 23andMe, AncestryDNA, and other DNA kit providers to give you a clearer picture of your wellness and genetic traits.
Whole genome sequencing is a technique that decodes 100% of your DNA. That means decoding all 6.4 billion DNA base pairs in your genome including the complete set of all 20,000 genes, mitochondrial DNA, and the Y chromosome.
That means whole genome sequencing gets all the large and small genetic variants that might be missed with genotyping you get from 23andMe and AncestryDNA.
If you think you might have rare genetic variants, genotyping services might not detect them. Since 23andMe changes what sections of the genome they target for analysis from time to time, you might not know if or when you will really know about them.
Companies like 23andMe and AncestryDNA offer genotyping, which are DNA tests that decode less than 0.02% of DNA. That means in order to get you results for ancestry, health risks, and traits, they have to guess what the rest of your genome looks like.
That means the results you would get for ancestry, health risks, and traits would not be as accurate as you would want them to be. Especially if you’re from an underrepresented population or if you suspect you have rare genetic variants.
If you take your data from 23andMe or AncestryDNA and upload it to different DNA upload sites, you’d find that your results vary. Different sites might give you very different percentages for your ancestry and other information you want to know about yourself.
When you order DNA sequencing through Nebula, you can get one-test sequencing or an annual subscription which gives weekly updates and access to new genomic research. You have full control and ownership of your data.
Plus, you get early access to all Traitwell apps—for life.
