Your DNA can be used to create accurate predictive models for the prevention of chronic diseases. The DNA Company's comprehensive assessment panel can help your clinician personalize:

#1. CNVs AND IN/DELs ARE IMPORTANT VARIANTS TO ACCOUNT FOR
(5 points to consider)
DNA testing generally revolves around looking for variations in DNA, the most popular of which are known as Singular Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs). Some SNPs occur in functional genes that code for important enzymes affecting multiple aspects of our mental, emotional and physical health.
A different type of testing, not used by a majority of DTC tests, is necessary in order to take CNVs and IN/DEls into account. These additional variations within our DNA, outside of SNPs, can have far reaching health related implications which absolutely requires a commanding knowledge of DNA in order to arrive at the highest possible accuracy in genotype and interpretation.
#2. iN Direct to Consumer (DTC) TESTS 40% OF VARIANTS
IN A VARIETY OF GENES WERE ACTUALLY FALSE POSITIVES
Traditionally, gene testing is done by querying multiple genes simultaneously and looking for individual SNPs within each gene. The actual molecular reaction (PCR) to do this diminishes in quality the more genes are queried simultaneously.
#3. ACCURACY IS THE DNA COMPANY’S PRIORITY
AND THEY AIM TO BE THE GOLD STANDARD
Multiplex gene testing is still a relatively new science. The majority of companies, in a bid to take advantage of the DTC market, have marketed DNA testing primarily aimed at gathering as much data in as cost effective manner as possible. Genotype accuracy, intelligent/informative analysis and reporting are all secondary priorities in the bid to provide as much “raw data” as possible.
#4. WHO IS CURATING YOUR DNA TEST
AND WHERE IT’S PROCESSED MATTERS
The DNA Company’s proprietary DNA test is carefully designed and curated by Dr. Mansoor an actual genomicist. In other words specific SNP’s were either included or excluded based on his experience working with Intelligent pathway driven genetics. Dr. Mansoor began his career by using genetics for bona fide disease diagnostics. He initially trained as a cancer diagnostics specialist at UCLA and then went on to use genetic testing in childhood developmental syndromes (down syndrome, prader willi syndrome ect.) these were the original categories that genetic testing was reserved for.
#5. THE DNA COMPANY’S COMPREHENSIVE
DNA PANEL ~ WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
Intelligent pathway driven genetics does not replace medicine or the need of a good clinician. However, it does provide vital information, the same way an operating manual does, to inform your clinician about things that they should look at closer. Things that they should consider in the bigger picture of your health and treatment plan.
