“At Genopedia, we believe in the transformative power of human genetics. Our platform decodes genetic information to empower personalized healthcare like never before. With Genopedia, the abstract language of our DNA becomes an open book for all - scientists, doctors, and for everyone interested in exploring why they are unique.
The future of healthcare is no longer 'one-size-fits-all'; it's tailored, focused on our unique genetic make-up. By democratizing access to genetic knowledge, we're not just unraveling scientific mysteries, we're shaping a healthier future for humanity.”
Bananas share about 60% of their genetic material with humans. While this may seem surprising, it's important to note that the genetic similarity is based on common ancestry and evolutionary relationships rather than functional similarities.
Chimpanzees are our closest living relatives, sharing approximately 98% of our genetic material. They belong to the same family as humans, called Hominidae, and have similar anatomical and physiological characteristics.
Even though all humans are remarkably similar, being 99.9% genetically identical, it's that tiny 0.1% that makes each of us unique .
In the vast library of our DNA, this 0.1% represents millions of tiny variations that affect everything from our height and eye color to our health and even how we process food. Think of it as the secret recipe that makes you, well, you! Despite our striking similarities, this splash of difference creates a world filled with diverse and unique individuals. Here are some examples:
In genetics, a Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) denotes a specific position at an exact location in the DNA where genetic variations are known to occur among humans. The human is about long. There are around and roughly 4 to 5 million of those are wide-spread global variations. Different variations in genetics letters at these locations can have effects on your body.
The snp of the day is featured in green and highlights the letter combination C/C. In DNA there are only four possible letters: A, T, C and G, which are called . The sequence of the genetic letters is like your personal code, which differentiates you from the rest of the world.
It's that simple! Your personal letter code is what makes you unique!
Each DNA consists of a primary strand (shown with genetic letters in colors) and a second strand with complementary letters. Only the primary strand is relevant for the encoding of information.Browse left and right to see SNPs in the proximity!
Since SNP variations are what makes you unique, they are also responsible for various effects on your body. Effects are either your traits or diseases that you might have. Depending on what genetic letter combination you have, certain effects potentially apply to you.
