geneIQ: Making sense of direct-to-consumer genetic tests
Genetic testing is a growing business and people are interested in genetic tests for various reasons, including identifying their disease risk, planning for their family, or learning about their ancestry. However, there is an existing gap in genetic knowledge, frequently needed to be able to make an informed choice of a test and later to understand the results. Additionally, the reports from multiple tests can be not just confusing but also conflicting. We provide an assistance in test selection based on what people want from these tests. Once people have obtained the results from these tests we can provide them with a personal analysis, make further suggestions that will better meet their needs, and refer them to counselors who will advise them about their results. We also provide genetics education and general information, as well as a place for social networking with others who are taking these genetic tests.
