Explore the universe of you
DNAPassport enables people to discover and learn about themselves using their DNA. A fun, informational and non-medical experience, DNAPassport explores over 40 traits of what makes us who we are, from our ancestry to our personality, behaviors and preferences and physical appearance.
Available online or using the iOS app, DNAPassport is the perfect “starter kit” for people ready to explore their genetics.
Go deeper in “The Lab”
DNAPassport includes a unique section called “The Lab” – this is where you can explore traits where the scientific research may be less mature – and in the future you’ll have the chance to opt-in to a “citizen scientist” program to unlock more unique insights by answering questions about yourself to help inform our internal research programs.
Findings and new traits will be released in free updates to the DNAPassport app periodically so you are always discovering.
See how big your universe is
Expand your orbit by connecting with others in the Helix platform and compare insights. Connect and compare with parents, siblings, friends – anyone you like – as often as you like!
*Comparing is a feature of DNAPassport and not required for a complete personal experience. Users must be sequenced through Helix to participate.
