We know there’s a genetic component to being a morning person. Does geography also play a role? Our scientists took a look at the distribution of morning people in the USA. Is your state one of the early risers? http://23me.co/BSEN3G

From my experience, geography definitely plays a role. I live in the Pacific Northwest and am not a morning person here. However when I travel to Europe, I'm definitely a morning person there..... can't sleep in if I try.....nor does this pattern change over time.

Are you a morning person or a night owl? 23andMe research shows that more than 60% of people over 60 are morning people. Women are also more likely to be early risers. http://23me.co/BSEN3G

Scientists are making progress on understanding the genetics of schizophrenia. Read more about the latest research: http://23me.co/2aSB4b
A new study provides researchers with their first biological handle on the disorder, and helps explain why it often begins at a relatively young age.

Don't get your hopes up too high. They have not discover what, specifically activates these genes. To just flaunt the phrase "synaptic pruning" is not too edifying. Which synapses are "pruned"? Does that just happen in the frontal cortex or are other brain structures, nuclei, or systems also "pruned"? Is this occurrence restricted to the brain? Is this process subject to any other events in the internal or external environment? If we tinker with system, will it effect our capacity to defend against pathogens or our immune system integrity? What about our response to allergens? I only ask because the authors allude to this in other, normal and necessary bodily defense mechanisms? I

We don’t think there’s a correlation between points and chromosome pairs. But we ran these mascots’ numbers just in case. Which team are you cheering for today?

I guess that makes you special Susan, just kidding. It's not funny but glad your son doesn't have the same problem.

wondering why my husband has yet to get his health reports ....I am already "grandfathered" in but he joined shortly before they pulled the health reports...he should be one of the first to receive it ..not one of the lasT!

Researchers are increasingly experimenting on themselves, in part by sequencing their genomes. How can the data be used to advance scientific discovery? http://23me.co/pQyz48
Scientists increasingly test new treatments on themselves in part to gain insight into improving testing procedures.

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
