23andme vs. Helix

2019-01-03


I have genetic test results from 23andme and Helix/Arivale, so I thought it would be interesting to see if they both agree on the SNPs they measure. The answer is yes.

Both of my parents also submitted results and I compared them to mine, finding a few differences here and there, but nothing of serious consequence. Genetic tests have always been disappointing to me because the results rarely seem actionable.
