  • 23andMe Interactive DNA Discovery

    “As a scientist, I saw the magnificent beauty of the world that lies inside of all of us and I wanted to share that wonder with everyone,” Thao Do, PhD said. To do that, our team decided to create a portal that would enable people to learn about genetics quickly and in a way that’s interactive and fun.

    That’s why we’ve launched a new interactive learning website called Interactive DNA Discovery.

  • Congratulations to Tara Turley-Stoulig
    23andMe Education Grant winner

    “Through the 23andMe grant program, my undergraduate students will have the opportunity to learn more about their own, personal genetic information and develop a better understanding of what these types of services offer. We will be able to dive into genetics in a completely different and individualized way, bringing the science of the process into view and applying a creative twist. This means I can provide a genetics education experience that is unique for students and engaging on a whole new level.” – Tara Turley-Stoulig

  • Teacher’s story
    Professor David Matthes

    “Teaching students the rules of inheritance, of gene expression, and genetic variability feels like teaching them some of the most vital secrets of the universe. With the availability of personal genetic data from 23andMe we get the opportunity to make genetics personal: it’s not just “a haplotype” it’s their haplotype. It’s not just an ancestry informative marker, it’s the one they inherited.” – David Matthes
