My Way DNA is a service that provides information on the variants of your genes.
We do not diagnose but consult you on the gene variants that influence the human body. However, by knowing your genetics, your doctor can help diagnose and prescribe a personalized treatment that suits your needs.
How genetics is used to create your healthy diet
Your genes are responsible for metabolism and detoxification of the nutrients you consume. These processes are important for your organism because they affect the development of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and obesity — to name a few.
* the number of genetic variants that we analyze depends on the source of your raw data file.
Why your raw data file may miss some genetic variants
The genetic testing companies such as 23andMe, Ancestry or MyHeritage use Illumina HumanOmniExpress format chip for the analysis. It’s a very popular approach for genotyping but, like every methodology, it has pros and cons.
The amount of SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms) is large: around 600,000
Low genotyping cost
There is a chance that some random SNPs won't be detected during genotyping
That’s why each customer of 23andMe, Ancestry or My Heritage has a unique set of genotyped SNPs. If you need to know the exact genetic variant, you should test it by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). Using medical laboratories for disease diagnosis is common.
The selection of scientifically reliable SNPs
MyWayDNA takes into account genetic variations that have very low p-value, a property that indicates high reliability of scientific data. The lower the p- values, the stronger the association between genetic variation and analyzed trait. The threshold value for the SNPs we analyze is 10^-6. Due to the insufficiently proven significance, we do not take into account all higher values of the p-value in the bioinformatics analysis.
