How To Analyze Your 23 & Me Data and Decode Your Genetics

How To Analyze Your 23 & Me Data and Decode Your Genetics

This week on the OPP, we’re decoding our genetics by analyzing 23 & Me data with Dr. Anthony Jay.

Author of Estrogeneration and a previous guest on the OPP, Dr. Jay is back to talk Epigenetics by using our 23 and Me data to look at our single nucleotide polymorphisms, or snips (SNP).

These polymorphisms (not mutations), or DNA snips are the most common variations in our genes, playing a direct in the function of those genes and serving as biological markers for certain disease risks, among other health implications.

Dr. Jay analyzes 23 & Me to investigate 3 key areas: detoxification, health risk, and athletic profile.
