Description

myGenome is a Whole Genome Sequencing and interpretation service that helps you improve your health to live a longer and happier life.

This genetic test is a key tool in preventive, personalized medicine that allows you to adapt your medical care and lifestyle according to your personal genetics.

What is included in myGenome?

  • Two consultations with a Genetic Counselor. The first session is to explain the objective and scope of the analysis so that you can make an informed decision about proceeding with the test. The second session is to review the test results and create an action plan on how to use them.
  • Information on more than 650 conditions of genetic origin based on the analysis of 566 genes. Selected for their operability and using the ACMG 59 standard. (American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics)
  • Information on 15 multifactorial conditions, included in the “Risks” section of the report.
  • Carrier status on more than 225 conditions that you may pass on to your children.
  • Information about drug sensitivities on more than 150 drugs.
  • Information on more than 50 genetic traits related to diet, athletics, longevity, nutrition, behavior, cardiovascular health, metabolism and immune system.
  • Encryption, anonymization and high security storage of your genetic information.
  • Information about your ancestors.

I want to order myGenome, what are the next steps?

Buy your kit. We will contact you to set up an online genetic counseling consultation. During the session an expert will explain the purpose and scope of the test.

Receive your sample collection kit. Follow the instructions on how to provide your sample.

Follow the instructions and request the collection of the sample. A messenger will be sent to collect your sample kit.

We analyze your sample, extract and sequence ALL of your DNA. We read 6 billion letters A, T, C and G that make up your DNA and form your genes.

We prepare a complete and understandable report that you will receive during a consultation with a Genetic Counselor who will explain the next steps based on your results.

You will have a consultation with our Genetic Counselor in which you will receive your report, review the results and create an action plan.

Why sequence your genome?

Whole genome sequencing not only gives a more complete picture, but also provides a resource that you can consult again and again. Genome sequencing is the first step in a life-changing journey – your journey.

Receive useful information, such as possible disease risks and recommendations for adjustments in your lifestyle, for example changes in your diet.

Our genetic counselors can help you and your physician interpret the results.

As significant scientific advances are made in the field of genetics, we can return to your genome and update your information. It will be a resource for LIFE.

RELEVANT INFORMATION

More information about here.

We analyze important and useful information. From the enormous amount of information contained in your DNA we will mainly analyze the information recommended by the genetics societies and also the information related to actionable conditions in order to prevent or detect them early. myGenome does not intend to study all the diseases, the objective is to carry out a screening of frequent and actionable diseases, detectable by sequencing.

myGenome is designed to detect risk for cardiovascular diseases and cancer, these two groups of diseases are the two most frequent causes of disease and there are strategies that we can follow to prevent them. In addition, diseases are reported within the following categories: susceptibility to cancer, cardiovascular diseases, study of carriers, neurological disorders, coagulation disorders, organ health, endocrine and metabolic disorders and mitochondrial diseases.

Genetic Counseling session prior to the test: in the consultation the genetic counselor will request information about your personal and family history to see if the test is appropriate for you. myGenome is for healthy people with no clear history of genetic disease. The genetic counselor will also explain the purpose and limitations of the test.


RESULTS REPORT

We prepare a complete and understandable report for you with the following sections:

  • Clinical results: severe pathologies that require medical intervention.
  • Carrier results: pathologies that you may transmit to your children.
  • Risk results: multifactorial diseases, that is, complex pathologies that depend on genes and environment.
  • Pharmacogenomics: your reaction based on your genetics to more than 150 drugs.
  • Genetic traits: individual characteristics influenced by genes and environment.
  • Ancestry: information about the origin of your ancestors.
