New research from 23andMe’s Parkinson’s community looks at how self-assessment and remote assessment could work together – making recruitment for research more affordable, faster and less onerous on participants. Read more: http://23me.co/Nm6KmJ

We’ve shipped kits to 50+ countries. Kits sent to Perth, Australia travel farthest, going once around the world to reach the customer and get back to our lab. #Powerof1Million

Fascinating stuff. I would love to see results if  any come back from the middle east.

Why does cilantro taste like soap? The folks over at SciShow took a look at the genetic association. Do you love it or hate it? http://23me.co/noCQQp

Love it. Don't taste soap. I wonder how those who do taste other natural mints?

After years of assuming they were fraternal twins, a 23andMe test revealed that Greg and Alex are identical. It’s more common than you might think! “Being a twin is an intrinsic part of the way I look at my own identity, so getting it right and understanding myself is important,” Greg said.

Our mom had always said whether +Lillith Sullivan and I were identical twins was in question as we had separate amniotic sacs; +23andMe indeed confirmed that we are identical. :D

Happy Father’s Day! We asked 23andMe employees to share all the reasons they’d like to get their dad a kit this year. Reason #15: He suspects he has Italian ancestry; now we’ll know for sure.

Why does your dad want to know more about his DNA? #DadDNA http://23me.co/keASx5

Thanks for all that you folks have done thus far. I knew I was Irish,
European, Indian. Pap had these beautiful dimples and the silver hair. It's
a shame that I don't know much more than 1) he was a Korean War Veteran, 2)
He had a rare fungus disease, while driving tractor/trailors, 3) He past of
a Cerebral Hemmorage. I have Parkinson's Disease, but if i'm not mistaken
23andme.com, thinks that its maternal. Happy Father's Day to all of the
Fathers at 23andme.com and the 1321 DNA relatives, found in my ancestry
profile. Thanks again for the Parkinson's Disease research. Keep up the
excellent works.

16% of 23andMe customers with European ancestry reported that they were lactose intolerant, compared to about 85% of those with Asian ancestry. More about lactose tolerance and genetics: http://23me.co/oeO2kA

I got this quote in a fortune cookie a few years ago.  Thus we evolve, I   believe.  Keep stretching.

We've collected 2000 liters of saliva. That's 2ml for every genotyped 23andMe customer. #Powerof1Million

Scientists from the University of Copenhagen have used DNA evidence to link the Kennewick Man to Native Americans. Read the fascinating story from NPR here: http://23me.co/1e7Hsc
The new evidence suggests the ancient skeleton is closely related to members of a Washington state tribe. The findings are likely to rekindle an old debate between scientists and Native Americans.

Genetically, what do we get from dad? Just in time for Father’s Day, 23andMe customer care rep, Cameron takes a look at Y-chromosome inheritance and how your dad’s DNA factors into your 23andMe results: http://23me.co/keASx5. #DadDNA

Dad, was a Korean War veteran and it's to bad the VA, doesn't have the DNA from his rare fungus disease and all of the DNA from his Brain. Past on in 1994-Cerebral Hemmorhage. I of course am the 1.6 out of 100, to have Parkinson's Disease

genetics just got personal
Introduction
23andMe was founded to empower individuals and develop new ways of accelerating research. The members of 23andMe have come together because we believe in the combined potential of genetics and the Internet to have a significant, positive impact.

23andMe is a web-based service that helps you read and understand your DNA. After providing a saliva sample using an at-home kit, you can use our interactive tools to shed new light on your distant ancestors, your close family and most of all, yourself
