What will your DNA tell you?
Curious about your ancestors? Or what genetic conditions you might pass on to your kids? By sequencing your DNA, Helix helps you answer questions like these—and many, many more.
How it works
Order a product
Choose a product from the Helix Store, and we’ll send you a saliva collection kit so we can sequence your DNA.
We use Next Generation Sequencing technology to read your DNA, and then store and protect the resulting data.
Explore your results
We share only the relevant parts of your data with the partner of your choice so they can generate and deliver you insights.
Your privacy is our number one priority. We won’t share your data without your permission. We pledge to uphold the highest standards of bioethics and maintain rigorous policies and procedures to keep your data safe and secure.Learn how we protect your data
Typically, people think of one gene giving rise to one trait. But we’ve come to find that very few of our traits work like this. Take hair color for example: there is no single brown, red, or blonde hair gene—it’s actually a whole network of genes that interact with one another to control the production of colorful pigments.
At first glance, genomics is about as far from space travel as you could imagine two careers to be. But when you look closer, you realize that they’re incredibly similar.
