Coronavirus DNA Health Report - Personal Risk Analysis – Sequencing.com

Post by Arcadiaville » Sat Mar 28, 2020 4:37 pm

I received a partial DNA trait report from Sequencing.com this week for my susceptibility to Covid-19 virus. As I do not have a monthly membership, only a few individually purchased apps, the test reported a susceptibility, not severity, analysis based on about 16 genes. How did I fare? :?:

Susceptibility to coronavirus infection: Lower
Health status risk - No current health issues: Lower
Age risk -15-59: Lower
Genetic Severity: * Requires membership


Well, so far so good as I live near a global virus hot spot but had a normal body temperature this morning. :) Has anyone received the full results based upon either membership or whole sequencing? Commercial test kits such as 23andMe contain only a fraction (0.1) of the genes available from whole sequencing.

This is what the Covid-19 DNA results summary look like if you take the free susceptibility analysis.*

* Note that the severity-level analysis requires a paid membership. I received email notification of the susceptibility trait results due to having an account for purchasing several DNA apps individually.

I discovered that this portal includes a Covid-19 genetic susceptibility reading in the Health section. Of 7 call results, 4 showed increased risk & 3 showed decrease risk. 3 SNPS were no call. Therefore, either those 3 no-calls tipped the results, or there is a discrepancy with my other genetic test company results which predicted a slight decrease in risk.

We have added some new SNPs to the test at www.yourdnaportal.com

Thank you for the additional traits heads-up! I show reduced risk for all but 1 of the 5 that I had call results for: :)

A few updates to my Coronavirus experience:

- I am participating in several DNA company CV-19 studies including Genomelink.com and Helix.com which administer weekly activity and symptom surveys. I discontinued participating in 23andMe due to recent politicizing position of CEO following civil unrest incident in USA.

- I took a CV-19 test (nasal swab) at medical clinic as travel condition and tested negative. On plane, I was placed in between couple who disclosed that they were from "hot-spot" region for disease. The man opted to move to middle sit and have me sit on end. They complained to flight crew that they purchased their ticket under condition that middle seat would not be filled, but a major incident did not arise. Several weeks after flight I do not show any symptoms, and I have not been in contact with anyone who has been known to contract the disease.

- My region has halted moving to less restrictive lock-down conditions over last month following increase in alleged cases. Stores had opened with social conditioning markers in place, and some restaurants and bakeries opened to in-house seating at reduced capacity. This may revert back to closed under current climate. A restaurant during my travel required sign-on with my name and telephone number for contact tracing.
