What can I learn from the tellmeGen DNA test that I might not otherwise be able to know? What are the benefits of doing a DNA test?

After centuries of research, we know that a significant percentage of our physical, psychological and behavioral characteristics are determined by our DNA sequence.

The tellmeGen genetic test brings you closer to the molecular understanding of your personal essence. Each of us is unique due to differences in our DNA sequence or genome, and these differences are reflected in variations in our genes. With the help of the tellmeGen genetic test, you can learn about the variations in your genes that make you unique.

Benefits of DNA testing 

Knowing your genes and their sequence can help you improve your health and well-being, make informed lifestyle decisions, learn about personal traits related to nutrition and sports, and discover your origins.

Do I have a predisposition to develop diseases or to transmit them to my children? 

The health section of the test allows you to detect diseases for which you have a genetic risk early, take necessary actions to prevent their development, and determine which drugs are best suited to minimize side effects.

If you are considering having children, the tellmeGen test can help you determine if you can transmit hereditary diseases to your offspring.

The wellness section provides insight into the foods that may be best suited to your body (nutrigenetics), how your body processes certain food supplements (such as vitamins), the type of physical exercise that is best for you, and if you are prone to muscle or ligament injuries.

Why do I have this eye color? What is my caffeine tolerance?

The personal traits section provides a comprehensive understanding of the physical and physiological characteristics that make you unique: eye color, hair type, caffeine tolerance, biological aging, intelligence, pain sensitivity, and many other traits, as well as key aspects of your behavior linked to your genes, such as the ability to avoid mistakes, alcohol or nicotine dependency, and gambling behavior.

What are my origins? Can I know my ethnicity?

The ancestry section allows you to explore your origins and the history of your ancestors. You can learn which geographical population or ethnic group you belong to and find out the proportion of European, Asian, or African components in your genome. tellmeGen provides you with the genetic percentages from each region, bringing you closer to the origin of your ancestors.

In addition, it reveals to which maternal and paternal haplogroups you belong and the percentage of Neanderthal DNA in your genes.

Finally, the DNA Connect service provides access to genetic relatives from all over the world, if they are in the database. You can interact with them through your private tellmeGen account.
