Obtain your Personal DNA Profile: You Have Five Options

deCODE me by deCODE genetics
• For $985 they will scan over one million variants in your genome
• Calculate genetic risk for 18 diseases based on the current literature
• Find out where your ancestors came from and compare your genome with others
• Get regular updates on future discoveries and a growing list of diseases and traits
• deCODEme is a living website which will be continuously updated with information by deCODE genetics' team of experts. deCODEme Cardio(TM), which detects genetic risk factors for heart attack, stroke and atrial fibrillation, peripheral artery disease (PAD), and several other conditions, is offered at an introductory price of $195. deCODEme Cancer measures genetic risk factors for prostate, lung, bladder, skin and colorectal cancers, as well as the common form of breast cancer, at an introductory price of $225. Both can be ordered as a bundle for $350. deCODE genetics is a biopharmaceutical company applying its discoveries in human genetics to develop drugs and diagnostics for common diseases and a global leader in gene discovery. Its stock is publically traded in the US under symbol 'DCGN'

SeqWright's Genomic Profiling Service can detect nearly one million common genetic variations, known as SNP's. For $998, the service promises to offer you a glimpse into your genome, identfying the genetic variations which are known to be associated with disease, ancestry, and genealogy and holding the hope that you'll be able to see how future breakthroughs apply to you.

23andMe is a web-based service that helps you read and understand your DNA for $999. After providing a saliva sample using an at-home kit, you can use their interactive tools to shed new light on your distant ancestors, your close family and most of all, yourself. 23andMe uploads your genome data to a secure database. With your own private login, you can then explore your genome. You can discover your origins, learn what the latest genetic findings may mean for you, and connect genetically with friends, family, and others across the globe.

The Navigenics Health Compass scans your entire genetic code, looking for markers for about 20 actionable medical conditions. It provides an analysis of your chances of getting each condition, and gives you the information you need to know to take next steps. A limited number of reservations are available now for $2500.

The Navigenics Health Compass includes
• The initial whole genome scan
• A private Web portal with relevant health and wellness information
• A consultation with a certified genetic counselor
• A yearlong subscription that continuously checks your DNA against new developments in genetics
• Updates on new prevention and treatment therapies

Knome is the first firm to offer individuals the opportunity to have their entire personal genome sequenced. Using the latest advances in whole-genome sequencing, they will sequence your genome and will provide you with a comprehensive analysis of the results under the direction of a leading geneticist. Their proprietary genome management platform will enable you to retain complete control over your private genomic information, all for $350,000!

Not ready? You may wish to consider archiving your DNA or that of family members.

How does all of this work? The Economist provides an explaination: "All people are 99.9% identical, genetically speaking. Therefore almost all of the 3 billion letters in the human genetic sequence are the same. Only at certain places is one letter replaced by another in a large fraction of the population. These points are called single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs, and there are 10m or so of them. Looking only for SNPs is cheaper and quicker than analysing the entire genome."
