NEW! DNA information page
There is always something new to discover.

News from 23andMe: As of October 21, 2015, the 23andMe service in the US now includes reports that meet FDA standards for being scientifically and clinically valid. New customers will receive personalized genetic health reports that include carrier status, wellness, and trait reports. With these added features the new price is $199. Current customers processed since December 2013 were done on the current V4 chip and will be transitioned to the new "experience" over the next several weeks. The status of those on prior chip versions has not yet been determined.
