23andMe Research Highlights from 2019 – January 3, 2020

I saw this last night on 23andMe – 23andMe Research Highlights from 2019: https://blog.23andme.com/23andme-research/23andme-research-highlights-from-2019/.

I would caution that much of the research is preliminary as there is much not known about DNA and how it affects conditions, diseases, etc. as much as some experts claim otherwise

The end of 2019 capped a decade of innovation in genetic research at 23andMe.

Over the last ten years, 23andMe researchers have completed or collaborated on more than 150 published studies. The pace of that discovery, and the breadth of our research, has only grown over time.

In the last year, 23andMe has also undertaken some new and exciting collaborations that promise to incorporate new types of data into research.

We want to share with you some of that work with you. So here’s a look back at some of the research efforts and papers that stood out over the last year.

Ongoing Collaborations

Early on, we understood the power of 23andMe’s research model and what has become the most significant database of its kind in the world. To maximize the potential of this great resource, we established our Research Innovations Collaboration Program. This ensures that other qualified researchers will be able to use this aggregated de-identified information for important studies and enhance the impact of 23andMe’s research data.
