* DIYgenomics

market download Personal genome information application: view the specific genes and SNPs (location of potential genetic mutations or "typos") that research has linked to different conditions. Three views are available: health condition risk (Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, cancers, etc.), drug response for over 200 drugs (statins, warfarin, clopidogrel, viagra, caffeine, alcohol, etc.), and athletic performance (endurance, strength, recovery, tendon strength, etc.).

Bonus: upload your 23andMe personal genome data to check your specific profile for the different conditions. (Email your 23andMe zip file to the mobile; click on the attachment in email or in downloads manager and an option to import it into DIYgenomics will appear. Delete private data later if desired from the DIYgenomics app menu.)
