    Genomix

    Is it too good to be true?:

    http://www.genomix.co

    The site is called Genomix and is apparently run by the University of Sydney in Australia.

    They will sequence the whole genome (3 billion base pairs) at a 30x coverage, which is excellent (better than most testing companies). The raw data will be available for download to use on third-party services. The kit won't be delivered until end of 2017 though. The price is a mere AUD $200 (135€ or USD $150). Sounds like a good opportunity considering that most whole genomes test costs around USD $1000 to $2000.

    They do not do any ancestry ...............only the medical side of your genes................something, IMO, that 23andme is trying to eventually get to in the USA

    They only do the testing. They do not do any interpretation of the data at all. 23andme is trying to interpret the data apart from providing the test. They test ALL3 billion base pairs of your DNA then provide the raw data and BAM/VCF files to be used with other companies that interpret the data. That means ancestry SNPs will be included.

    And this "interpret" the data is why 23andme fails ( has issues) in the USA..................

    That's not the issue. Genomix does test the ancestry SNPs.

    I don't think so. The reason it is so cheap is that it is subsidized and they do test all 3 billion base pairs.

    THE TEST

    Genomix Whole Genome Sequencing allows you to decode every single base of DNA that makes you your entire genetic profile. This includes all 3 billion base pairs of DNA that encode for approximately 21, 000 genes in 23 pairs of chromosomes. By getting your entire genome sequenced, you will be able to get a comprehensive picture of your genetic profile. This test is a life time investment for your long term health. Discover more about yourself from your genomic data than is possible with other genetic tests and as new research becomes available every year.



    WHY WHOLE GENOME SEQUENCING?

    This comprehensive test will discover all four types of mutations that may occur in your in your DNA base pairs, no other genetic test can discover all these:

    Single nucleotide variants:
    Small duplications, insertions, deletions, indels
    Exon duplications, deletions or gene copy number changes
    Structural variants



    WHAT INFORMATION DO I GET?

    We provide raw data only. You will be able to use third party services for analysis and interpretation of your raw data and for genetic counselling if you choose. All up this is less than the thousands of dollars you would pay for non-subsidised whole genome sequencing. Once you receive your raw data, we provide a directory of third party services (self service and full service) available for you to make direct enquiries with. We do not recommend or endorse any third party services as we have no control over the quality.

    You may want to make direct enquiries with the following for analysis interpretation:

    Diploid

    Promethease



    HOW DOES IT WORK?

    Step 1: Sign up and make payment online
    Step 2: If sign up numbers are met, we let you know that sequencing will proceed and we ship DNA sample kits and instructions to you (we will confirm your address closer to shipping date)
    Step 3: You provide a DNA sample and send back to us via prepaid return shipping
    Step 4: Your DNA sample is sequenced and you receive your genomic raw data in BAM/VCF file format via secure login through our website within 6-8 weeks of your sample being sequenced
    Step 5: We provide a directory of third party services for analysis and interpretation of raw data that you can make direct enquiries with. We do not recommend or endorse any third party services



    PRIVACY

    Your data will be stored in secure HIPAA compliant servers with restricted access. We will act in accordance to the Australian Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and HIPAA 1996.



    SUMMARY

    Number of genes tested


    21,000

    Types of genes tested


    All 21,000 in 23 pairs of chromosomes

    Quality


    High quality data with minimum 30x coverage

    Data Storage


    Data will be stored in a HIPAA 1996 and Australian Privacy Act 1988 compliant and secure servers

    Includes


    Data on all 3 billion base pairs of your DNA
    BAM/VCF files
    Raw data to use with third party services to make your own discoveries on your predisposition to certain diseases and conditions, ability to metabolise certain foods and medications, and preventative actions you can take now to live longer and healthier

    Link where these chinese-australians from sydney university -Genomix does ancestry for humans ?



    Hope you are not mixing up the Genomix in australia with the other Genomix used for beef cattle .............ie..to improve the beef over time by looking at genetic changes

    Im very tempted to get this even if it's a year away. Here's FGC's 30x WGS comparison on Y-DNA vs others
