Which genetic traits are offered on each genetic testing service and raw DNA data upload sites?

A comparison chart: AncestryDNA, 23andMe, Promethease and Genomelink

Oct 29, 2018 · 3 min read

I’ve put together a comparison chart of the genetic traits covered by genetic testing services and sites where you can upload your raw DNA data to. Specifically, we’ll be comparing between ancestry-focused AncestryDNA, disease risk-focused 23andMe, SNPedia-connected Promethease and lifestyle traits-focused Genomelink.

Many Genomelink users ask “what genetic traits does Genomelink analyze that other genetic testing companies don’t?” and “How is Genomelink different from Promethease?”

So we’ve compiled our answers. We’ve put together a straightforward, yet comprehensive chart of the genetic trait categories each genetic testing service analyzes.

Genomelink does not provide any ancestry or medical traits. If you want to know more about your genealogy, AncestryDNA or the 23andMe Ancestry Service may be the option for you.

Promethease is a great tool to upload and analyze your DNA data against SNPedia. It is “a literature retrieval system that builds a personal DNA report based on connecting a file of DNA genotypes to the scientific findings cited in SNPedia.” It is another DNA data upload service like Genomelink, but designed for biomedical researchers and healthcare professionals.

If you’re looking to learn more about how your DNA influences your nutrition, fitness, personality and cognitive profile, Genomelink can do just that. We curate the latest relevant research studies, and organize it in a way that’s easy to understand, even without extensive knowledge of how DNA and genes work.
