This week is IBD Awareness Week! Earlier this year, we launched a study of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) including Crohn’s and Colitis in partnership with Pfizer. So far, we’ve signed up more than 3,500 of our 10,000 participant goal. Learn more about our study and how you can get involved here: 23me.co/TzciBM

Recently 23andMe tried to analyze a sample I sent in for an elderly family member and here's the message I received:
"Our laboratory attempted analysis of your saliva sample but the results from processing did not meet our standards for accuracy."
Please contact me at chrisandvan@comcast.net, I just have a few questions before I order a replacement kit.
Thanks, 
V. Flowers

Alan thought his Parkinson’s disease had robbed him of his ability to take good pictures, instead he found it opened up a whole new way of seeing and making “un-still” photographs. Read Alan’s story on the 23andMe blog: http://23me.co/lbwXfT

More than 200 scientists working on a federal project have completed what they call “a road map to the human epigenome.” With this research, they hope to gain a better understanding of the system of switches that regulates genes. Read more in the New York Times: http://23me.co/wn6rrD
Researchers hope the discoveries, described in two dozen papers released on Wednesday, will eventually lead to a deeper understanding of diseases and new ways to treat or cure them.

Research published this week by Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and 23andMe sheds some light on why older mothers face a higher risk of having babies born with conditions such as Down syndrome. Read more about our research: http://23me.co/bsxi38

Esther, David’s then 10-year-old sister, never again trusted the health care system. [...] she believed that her parents, too, had failed — to question authority and make educated decisions on their own. In 2006, she co-founded 23andMe, a Silicon Valley company out to pool the world’s DNA, give individuals access to their genetics, and in the process transform the way drugs are made, diseases are cured and patients are treated. In that crowd i...

Scientists are using individual genetic profiles to create predictive portraits of human faces. How close can they get to the real thing? http://23me.co/S0VHDa
To test the accuracy of DNA-based facial sketches, two Times journalists had scans made and people were asked to guess who the faces belonged to.

Wow! Just wow... sometimes it is scary to see how fast we are moving forward in all theaters of technology and science, in a good way.

Are you more injury-prone than other athletes? New research published in the Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine looks at the genetics of sports injuries to help us explain these frequent injuries and develop prevention techniques. Read more in the Atlantic: http://23me.co/mkzHF4
Researchers are beginning to understand how DNA makes some athletes more likely to get hurt.

An update on our progress with the FDA: yesterday we were granted authority to market FDA’s first-of-its-kind direct-to-consumer genetic test, specifically for our Bloom Syndrome Carrier Status test. Read more about what this means for you on our blog: http://23me.co/lFIDls

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
