DNA Passport Results

Updated August 9, 2018: added four new traits that 23andMe added to my list. I haven’t added it yet, but I recently uploaded my 23andMe (v3 chip) raw data to Silverberry Genomix and they gave me nine free reports which I will be adding for comparison here and in a separate blog post. Updated June 28, 2018 to include link to my friend’s blog. Also, HumanCode was recently acquired by Helix in an e-mail sent to me on June 28, 2018.

Thanks to a friend, I was able to get screenshots of my DNAPassport results. For now, you need the DNAPassport app which is only available as an iOS app to view results. HumanCode is working on making it available for Android devices and online at some point in the not too distant future. I volunteered to test their Android and web browser versions once they become available for testing. I also added the DNAPassport ethnicity results to an earlier post: https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2018/01/12/ignore-ethnic-results-below-the-continental-level/ (I included the screenshot of DNAPassport’s Ethnicity results near the bottom of the results below).

So far, I have screenshots for the following items.
Academic Achievement Possibly higher educational attainment (this one appears to be a mixed result)
Episodic Memory: Likely to have normal recall memory
Ancestry (ethnicity – both as a percentage and on a map)
North/West Europe 46% (Northern and Western European)
North Europe 33% (British, Irish, Finnish)
Undetermined 12%
South/West Europe 9% (Iberian and Spanish)
Asparagus Pee More likely to smell “asparagus pee” (can’t respond as I don’t eat asparagus so I don’t know if my urine has the asparagus smell after eating it, nor do I plan on finding out as I am not a fan of asparagus)
B6 Metabolism Likely lower levels of B6
B12 Metabolism Likely to have typical B12 levels in the blood
Caffeine Consumption Double shot (i.e., Likely to be a fast caffeine metabolizer)
Fast Twitch Muscle Fiber – Normal muscle composition
Freckles – shows slightly more freckles, but the indication is only a bit over the halfway mark towards more freckles; don’t think I have an excessive amount of freckles compared to the average
Gluten Intolerance Normal risk level
Magnesium Metabolism – Possibly lower magnesium levels in the blood
Grip Strength – Weaker, although like the Freckles one, it’s almost in the middle and slightly closer to less strong
Alcohol Flush – Unlikely to Flush (from alcohol consumption) – I don’t drink alcohol so I can’t give feedback if I do or don’t flush.
Hair Color Brown – 78%
Eye Color – Brown 95%
Hair Curl – Straight – pretty close to the straight side unlike some of the other results that are almost mid-point
Joint Injury – Associated with increased risk for ACL injury.
Bitter Taste – Possibly unable to taste bitter – don’t know on this one as I tend to avoid bitter tasting foods
Lactose Intolerance – Likely to be tolerant of lactose (first fail as I am somewhat lactose intolerant; when I was younger, I wasn’t, but as I have got older, it has become more of an issue)
Cilantro Taste Less likely to taste (in this case, the taste is a soapy taste that some people who eat cilantro or coriander products notice – again another fail as I definitely have the cilantro/coriander tastes like soap condition.
Male Pattern Baldness Balder – again in the mid-point range with only a slight edge towards being balder
Eye Pigmented Ring – Normal, but less likely to have a colored ring.
Morning Person – Less likely to be a morning person – spot on. When I was younger, I was very much a morning person; as I aged, I have become a night owl
Omega-3 Metabolism – Likely normal blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids
Iron Metabolism – Likely typical blood levels of iron
Periodic Leg Movement (the same as Restless Leg Syndrome) – Possibly increased leg movement during sleep
Warrior vs. Strategist: Strategist
Photic Sneeze Reflex – Slightly less likely to be a sun sneezer
Sun Sensitivity – More sensitive and looks like this is a case where the markers aren’t mixed
Saturated Fat Metabolism – High saturated fat diet may affect weight; more likely to gain weight with a high saturated fat diet
Mosquito Bite Size – average sized mosquito bites
Skin Color – Medium 78%
Height – Taller (around the 2/3 mark so closer than the mid-points for many of the other items)
Sleep Duration – normal (pretty sure this is an iffy one; when I was younger, 6 hours was my norm; now it varies from 4 – 6 hours with some 7-8 hour nights
Perfect Pitch – No evidence of enhancement (doubt many who have heard me sing would disagree with this one)
Sweet Taste Preference – More likely to crave sweets (no argument from me on this one)
Vitamin D Levels Likely normal Vitamin D levels – don’t think my doctor would agree with this one as they have me taking Vitamin D supplements.
Body Mass Index (BMI): Lower BMI (more lean genes)

Below are some of my 23andMe results (current and archived ones, v3 chip) UPDATED August 9, 2018 as four new traits added by 23andMe:

Genetic weight: Predisposed to weigh more than average
Saturated Fat and Weight: Likely to weigh more on a high saturated fat diet
Alcohol Flush Reaction Unlikely to flush
Caffeine Consumption: Likely to consume more
Deep Sleep: Less likely to be a deep sleeper
Muscle Composition: Uncommon in elite power athletes
Sleep Movement: Likely average or less movement

Traits (23andMe):

Asparagus Odor Detection Likely can smell
Back Hair Likely little upper back hair
Bald Spot Likely no bald spot
Bitter Taste Likely can’t taste
Cheek Dimples Likely no dimples

Widow’s Peak Likely no widow’s peak

Mosquito Bite Frequency
Some people report getting more mosquito bites than the people around them. Whether or not you feel like you are a mosquito magnet, your genetics may play a role.

Fear of Heights
Love heights, or hate them? New research at 23andMe has found genetic associations with the fear of heights.

Ability to Match Musical Pitch
Whether you can sing a concert aria or barely carry a tune, your DNA is probably playing a role in your ability to match a musical pitch.

Hair Photobleaching
Ever wonder why your hair lightens in the sun? People with certain genetics have higher chances that long-term sun exposure can lighten their hair color, an effect called photobleaching.

Archived results from 23andMe
Restless Legs Syndrome – Slighlty increased possibility of RLS
Obesity – Slightly decreased risk compared to average
Caffeine Metabolizer – Fast Metabolizer
Alcohol Flush Reaction – Does Not Flush
Bitter Taste Perception – Unlikely to Taste
Eye Color – Likely Brown
Hair Curl – Straighter Hair on Average
Lactose Intolerant – Likely Tolerant
Male Pattern Baldness – Increased Odds
Muscle Perfomance – Unlikely Sprinter
Asparagus Metabolite Detection – Higher Odds of Detecting
Memory – Typical Episodic Memory
