WHAT ARE FUNCTIONAL GENOMICS?

Functional genomics is the study of how our genome interacts with the world around us. Because it's not just about where you came from. It's about where you can go.

INTELLIGENT REPORTS.

Our clinical reports are designed for clinicians and consumers who know their genomics. Detailed gene by gene analysis as well as science-heavy concepts are explored through the lens of functional genomics. Need help understanding it all? Book a consult with a clinician today!

As seen in Dave Asprey's new book

Super Human: The Bulletproof Plan to Age Backward and Maybe Even Live Forever

"The area of functional genomics is just getting going. Like functional medicine, it is the study of what you can actually do to influence risk besides worry about it. For instance, my genome from the DNA Company revealed that I should take extra steps to take care of the tight membranes in my arteries, including taking the supplements in this book. Check out their test to discover your weaknesses and learn how to combat them."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Will this test diagnose any diseases or conditions that I may have?

No. This test is an association-based test. We don't diagnose you with disease. However, we try to identify genetic risk factors that may contribute to your risk of disease based on clinically documented research. Just because you're at an increased risk for a disease or condition based on your genetics, doesn't necessarily mean you will be diagnosed. Similarly, a normal or decreased risk doesn't necessarily mean you're safe from any particular disease or condition. Functional genomics evaluates both genomic and non-genomic factors to ultimately identify risks ahead of time and assists in building preventative health strategies for an improved health and wellness outlook over time. 

Who should consider buying this profile?

Any woman who is concerned about the hormonal aspects of her health. Generally, this test will be most helpful once you've entered puberty, all the way to post-menopause. At every hormonal stage of your life, the unique way in which you produce, metabolize, and clear out your sex hormones will play an integral role in shaping your overall health and wellness.

Will this test tell me if I have an associated risk with taking the birth control pill or hormone replacement therapy?

Yes. While your clinician is the one who will ultimately make that decision, the purpose of this test is to identify whether there is an increased risk associated with taking external hormones like the birth control pill, hormone-coated IUDs and hormone replacement therapy (HRT). This is largely based on the unique way in which your estrogens are metabolized into potentially toxic estrogen metabolites and their byproducts. 

How can I learn more about the next steps I need to take after I've done this test?

Book a consultation with one of our clinicians! Our clinicians are specifically trained to interpret clinical results and develop health solutions and action plans that are personalized based on your unique genomic profile, as well as non-genomic factors like your nutrition, environment and lifestyle.

Will you sell my data to 3rd parties like insurance companies? How do you protect my data?

We will NEVER sell your personal data. However, from time to time, we will anonymize your genomic data and aggregate it with other data samples for the purpose of research & development and the advancement of human health, which we may share with our partners. Don't worry, your information is 100% anonymized and no one can tie your genomic data back to your personal data. We store all of our samples in an anonymized manner at a government facility. All of our data is anonymized BEFORE it leaves our facility, and we store all digital on our protected server hosted through Microsoft Azure's security platform. If you still would like to have your data deleted and your sample destroyed once you receive your results, simply let us know and we'll send you a confirmation email once it is complete. 

Where do you ship your products?

We ship our test kits and supplements worldwide. Some countries may have customs and import duties or charges associated with our products and services. These charges are the responsibility of the client. 

How many SNPs do you test?

To clarify, our test is functional in nature. What that means is we aren't concerned with how many SNPs we're testing, rather the quality of each SNP and the relevance to critical biological and cellular processes. An overwhelming amount of the SNPs tested by most of the other DNA testing companies are actually functionally irrelevant. Our goal is to identify those SNPs (as well as other variations) that have a clinically validated and verifiable impact on your body. In this regard, we now have approximately 70 variations that we test for across several important cellular and biological processes within your body. 

Can you use data from an existing DNA test for your products and services?

Unfortunately, we do not accept testing from other companies for our programs. As our test is functional in nature and takes variations outside of SNPs (such as CNVs and In/Dels) into account, it would be difficult to provide you with accurate conclusions from the results of another test. You would need to complete one of our tests in order to be eligible for our additional products and services. 

Can you send me a sample of your reports?

Sure! Please send a request to admin@thednacompany.com and we would be happy to provide you with a sample of our reports. 

Can I download my data from you and run thru a service such as Promethease?

Our raw data files are not compatible with third party software as we test for variations in genes outside of SNPs. This can cause an error in the conclusion drawn from third party software as they do not take into account the functional nature of these variations and their influence on health and wellness. We only test for the specific genes indicated in the report, therefore, we do not provide and do not have additional raw data. 

Do you test for all the related genes for APOE?

We utilize the gold standard in DNA testing for the APOE gene by testing not one but both of the clinically relevant SNPs found in the APOE gene. This is why the result you receive is normally a dual result such as "3/3" or "4/4".

How long does it take to ship out a kit after I place an order?

We send out collection kits 24 business hours after an order is placed. If you ordered over a weekend, you can expect a test kit to go out by Monday. Depending on where you live, it can take between 1-7 business days to reach you. 

How long do results take?

Results typically take 6 weeks from the day we receive your sample back in our facility. It takes 2 weeks to send a batch to the lab from the time we receive the sample and then 3 weeks for the lab to process it and then 1 week for us to organize the data and send a report. 

I'm concerned with section 4 of your Privacy Policy. I do not want my personal information used for any marketing purposes or given to any 3rd party (except for genetic information in the aggregate with your other customers). What ability do I have to limit what information you share?

We do not provide third parties with personal information. We will only use your genetic information aggregated in an anonymized manner for the purpose of R&D and the advancement of healthcare. Your personal information is never shared with anyone. Our privacy policy is enacted to protect both ourselves and the customer, but we have a general in-house policy of never providing personal information under any circumstances.

I am seeking out DNA food testing, can you tell me about your testing kits? Also what DNA codes are run as well as options with prices? I am needing to run many tests, including vitamins too. 

Our Comprehensive Functional Genomics Test provides key insights into functional genomic pathways that influence critical biological and cellular processes in your body. This includes cardiovascular health, hormonal health, executive function, phase II detoxification (methylation and glutathionization), and diet & metabolism. We provide clinical reports that explain how various genes in your body work together in a series of pathways that ultimately influence your overall health and wellness. Please note, our tests are not designed for direct to consumer purposes. We strongly recommend purchasing a genomic consultation along with your test so that a clinician can assist you in understanding the results of your test. Furthermore, please know that our tests are NOT diagnostic tests. We do NOT diagnose diseases based on the results of your testing, however, we WILL identify potential genetic risk factors that could contribute to the onset of certain chronic diseases, when combined with non-genetic factors like diet, lifestyle, and environment. 


We offer clinical consultations with in-house clinicians that have been trained by world-renowned clinical genomicist Dr. Mansoor Mohammed. Our clinicians will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of your genomic results and identify the best plan of action for optimizing your health based on your results. 

Are you able to identify a predisposition to alcoholism?

Strictly speaking, there is no genetic predisposition to alcoholism. There are genomic influencers on addictive behaviour, which include the dopaminergic pathway (Fast COMT/Low DRD2 individuals). This combination influences all addiction tendencies. Some people may confuse the alcohol dehydrogenase gene/enzyme (ALDH), which influences the rate of alcohol metabolism, as a genetic predisposition to alcoholism but this is incorrect.Please note that we do not currently test for the alcohol dehydrogenase gene (sometimes referred to as the asian flush gene due to the skin flushing that occurs in that population as a result of a slow variation of that gene). However, as noted before, this is not a predisposition to alcoholism. In fact, individuals with the slow version of this gene may actually be deterred against alcoholism, due to the negative lingering effects of alcohol as a result of poor metabolism. 

I don’t want my information or sample stored after you’ve completed my testing. How do you deal with this?

We take significant measures to protect your genetic information. If for some reason you desire to have your information removed and your sample destroyed after receiving your reports, simply indicate this to us on your genetic consent form when you provide it along with your completed sample. You can also send written instructions to admin@thednacompany.com with your request. Please note that if we destroy your sample and information, we will be unable to generate new reports as well as test for new genes without a new sample, and you will be required to pay the full cost of completing an additional test to receive any new information. 

When you provide the DNA results regarding cancer related issues, can you detect the BRCA gene? 

There are several forms of DNA testing, and it is important to understand the difference between all the forms of testing available to you as a consumer.


Diagnostic based testing: Testing for genes whose known mutation are deterministic of certain diseases (ie. Cystic fibrosis, Huntington's Disease) 

Prognostic/Therapeutic based testing: Testing for genes after a disease is diagnosed to determine the impact of the disease (Breast cancer with Her2 amplification means a more aggressive cancer but also a cancer that can be treated with the cancer drug Herceptin) 

Risk Assessment testing: Testing for genes known to have a clinical risk associated with their mutation (ie. testing for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes) 

Association-Based testing: Testing for genes whose combination of variations MAY contribute to several undesirable health outcomes, and when combined with non-genomic factors like lifestyle, environment and diet/nutrition, could increase your risk of developing certain diseases and health conditions 


Please note that we are NOT a diagnostics, prognostic, or risk-assessment testing company. We are an association-based testing company. We identify potential risk associations between certain diseases and genetic-based outcomes. Your possession of a specific variation within your gene will NOT indicate a diagnosis for a disease, but it MAY contribute to the overall risk of developing a disease or health condition when combined with other non-genomic factors. As a result, we do NOT test for the BRCA genes.
