Newsflash! You are made of cells, and those cells have 23 pairs of chromosomes. Your chromosomes are made of DNA, which can tell a lot about you.
23andMe is a personal genomics and biotechnology company that offers two personal genetic services: Health + Ancestry and Ancestry. Both services simply require you to submit a saliva sample using the saliva collection kit provided.
The Health + Ancestry service provides insights on your genetic health risks, carrier status, traits, wellness, and ancestry. The Ancestry service helps you understand who you are, where your DNA comes from, and your family story. Both services are now on offer as part of 23andMe’s Cyber Monday sale.
You can pick up the Ancestry kit for just £44.00, down from £79.00, and the Health + Ancestry service for £74.00, down from £149.00 when you buy two or more kits. If you only want one Health + Ancestry kit then you will still receive a £50 discount. This offer expires at 8 p.m. on Nov. 27.
The results of these tests can be life changing. Some participants have been given a greater sense of identity, some have opened up new connections, and others have transformed their health regimes. Could you be next?
