In the past week or two I have seen a two posts asking questions related to information obtained from 23andMe or similar services.
I previously expressed that I thought it was not a good idea to answer these questions, as without a knowledge of the total genetic profile of the person, their family history, and the perspective of a genetics counselor, there was a risk that information provided could be unknowingly harmful.
- Understanding different genetic terminology - Genotype vs SNP
- What does it mean to have a Y-DNA Haplogroup "R-M512"?
Should questions related to results from genetics testing services be On-Topic or Off-Topic for Biology SE?
