Ancestry

Based on your genetic information, it is possible to determine the ethnic and geographical origin of your ancestors, reconstruct your family history and discover if you share the same common ancestor with others.


Analysis:

· molecular autosomal markers

· molecular mitochondrial markers

· Y chromosome markers

Nutrigenetics

Find out how your genotype influences your body’s response to nutrients.

Diversity in genetic profiles among individuals affects their nutrients requirements, their metabolism and their responses to nutritional and dietary interventions.

Nutrigenetics analyses the response of different genotypes (genetic variants) to nutrient intake and makes it possible for nutrition specialists to create personalised diets (both therapeutic and preventive) for their patients.


Analysis:

· Genetic predisposition to obesity

· Appetite regulation, satiety and emotional hunger

· Absorption, transport, storage and metabolism of fatty acids, sugars, vitamins and alcohol.

Genetics & Sports

Find out how your genotype (genetic variants) influences your sports performance.

Our study analyses genetic variants related to physical ability and sports and allows to use that information to plan sports practice depending on the possibilities of each person in order to avoid injuries or unwanted effects.


Analysis:

· Predisposition to suffer joint, tendon and muscle injuries

· Benefits of sports for your body (predisposition to lose weight, cholesterol lowering with exercise, etc.)

· Exercise endurance (muscle fatigue and regeneration capacity)



Predictive Medicine

Genetic screening to identify individuals at risk of developing a disease, thus making it possible to apply preventive strategies to prevent future development of the disease, delay its onset or reduce its symptoms.


Analysis:

· Reproductive health

· Heart diseases

· Neurological diseases

· Cancer risk

· Metabolic and respiratory diseases and carrier status.



Pharmacogenetics

Find out how your genotype influences your body’s response to certain drugs (pharmacological response).

Use of a specific drug therapy for a certain disease cannot be widespread in a comprehensive way, as not every person responds in the same way to medication. Treatments are affected by a wide range of factors that cause variability, so, in practice, effective and safe doses of many drugs vary from one patient to another.

A person’s capacity to metabolise drugs depends on multiple factors, among them their genetic profile. Depending on a person’s genotype (genetic variants), the desired response to a drug treatment may be obtained or, on the contrary, poor response, exaggerated response or no response at all to the treatment may be observed.

The pharmacogenetic study is extremely important as it allows to predict the individual response to a drug therapy, thus making it possible to select the optimal drug and dose to maximise efficiency and safety in drug treatments.

Genome Archive

We will store your genomic data in a way that is accessible to you. As scientific knowledge in the genomics field progresses and new information is available, we will re-analyse your genome and you will be informed of any new information relevant to your health.
