Scientists are searching for the genes associated with subjective well-being, or how you feel about the quality of your life. The results are in from one of the largest studies on the topic: http://23me.co/2k8Ycu
“Researchers at the University of Cambridge estimate that genetics can explain about a quarter of the difference in the likelihood that an individual will have sex relatively early or wait to start.” Read more via Scientific American: http://23me.co/AJOiwy
This should not be a private initiative. Rather it should be public in all ways. But the corruption in the american gov't is so rampant that not even findings based on public funding are not readily available (paywalls). a case in point is diabetes the public cost is hundreds of billions of dollars with suffering that no price tag can cover. But it is an industrial cash cow for big pharma and corruption is rampant throughout the house and senate and executive branch. If not for the corruption life could be far better in these United States. And the work of 23&Me would have easily been dwarfed by public initiatives. americans are the worst for bringing their gov't to accountability and utilizing their hard-earned tax dollars.
For the first time, scientists have identified genes that make some women more likely to give birth to twins. Researchers say this will also help us learn more about human fertility. http://23me.co/gFTmzH
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
