GENEius and Raw DNA Data F.A.Q.
WHAT IS GENEIUS?
GENEius is a company that performs analysis of raw DNA data and reports on cognitive and mental performance related traits. Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality cognitive-genetic information along with action plans that will allow you to put your genetic information to the greatest advantage.
HOW DOES THIS TECHNOLOGY WORK?
Human DNA is about 99.5% identical from person to person yet there are small differences that make each person unique. These differences are called variants and some can be linked to certain traits or health conditions. Variants are most commonly studied as Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms, or SNPs, which are variations at a single site in DNA. Your raw DNA data will be analyzed for these SNPs and a personalized report generated based on well-established scientific and medical research.
HOW ACCURATE ARE THE REPORTS?
The genetics specialists at GENEius perform a detailed scientific review and approval of variants in each product before they are made available for purchase. Every product is evaluated with respect to security, usability, and clarity of the information provided.
HOW DO I USE YOUR SERVICE?
Choose the report you are interest in, add it to cart and check out. After checkout, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with a link where you can upload your 23andMe or Ancestry.com raw DNA data. After uploading your raw DNA data, you will receive your report(s) within 24-hrs.
WHO CAN USE GENEIUS?
Currently, GENEius offers reports to customers who are able to download their raw DNA data from 23andme or ancestry.com. Stay tuned for updates, as these products will soon be available for use by any person at any age at our state of the art laboratory.
HOW IS MY DNA DATA PROTECTED?
GENEius takes the protection of your data very seriously and is taking a number of steps to ensure that it remains safe and secure.

CAN I PURCHASE A REPORT FOR SOMEONE ELSE?
You certainly can! You can do this in two ways. If you have access to their raw DNA data, you can purchase the report and upload their raw genetic data. When you receive their report, you can print it out or forward them the e-mail. If you do not have access to the 3rd party’s raw data, you can purchase the GENEius report you are interested in and copy the upload link into an e-mail to the 3rd party so they are able to upload their data.
