The Maze of Modern Medicine
Don’t worry, you aren’t the only one having a hard time with all of the lingo, catch-phrases, new discoveries and findings… these nuances of modern science often make it tricky to understand a topic like genetics. As a result, comparing different labs and services leaves consumers facing a myriad of technicalities. SNP Genotyping/Phenotyping, Exons and Introns, depth/confidence, naming conventions… the list goes on and on.
Let’s keep it simple: SNP-based genetic testing and reporting platforms provide a very incomplete picture of your unique genetic information compared to the plethora of available resources. Advanced and powerful genetic testing and reporting is out there, you just need to know where to look! Search for keywords like:
- Sequencing (Next Generation Sequencing or “NGS”)
- Whole Exome Sequencing (WES)
- Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS)
- Mitochondrial Sequencing (mtDNA)
Next Level Genetic Testing
Genetic testing with GeneSavvy delivers advanced, clinically actionable data. In fact, their unique testing and reporting platform provides state of the art functional medicine far beyond genotyping for common SNPs. Certainly GeneSavvy has developed advanced bioinformatics technologies and processes. From one single test, users gain interesting insights into their unique biological makeup. Knowing and identifying your genetic uniqueness is the first step towards personalizing a lifestyle optimally designed for your source code. GeneSavvy Starter Kit Test includes:
- Human whole exome sequencing
- Mitochondrial genome sequencing
- Genotyping and SNPs
- HLA Subtyping (Human Leukocyte Antigens)
- KIR Subtyping (Killer-cell Immunoglobulin-like Receptors)
- RCCX gene module information
- And more!
Constant development helps users further explore data in new ways, and to make more use their genetic information. Already have raw data obtained through another lab? Perfect, GeneSavvy’s reporting platform is compatible with any raw data you may have.
Functional Data Enrichment
Using associations, data enrichment creates powerful insights into collected genetic data. GeneSavvy’s unique enrichment database is full of clinical actionability. The database is perfect for functional health practitioners, or anyone looking for professional grade data. In addition, GeneSavvy constantly adds new information, providing users with new insights into gene/variant associations. For example, health-related pathways, cellular & molecular functions, lab biomarkers, interactions with pharmaceuticals, food/nutrients, environmental factors, and vitamins/herbs are all included. Data uses terms that functional health practitioners can easily use to guide action. GeneSavvy’s database does not enrich all genes/variants, currently. However, their database will continue to grow as research continues.
Diagnostic Grade Data
GeneSavvy uses top of the line lab equipment like Illumina’s NovaSeq 6000 machines, combined with stringent quality control parameters. Therefore, users experience results above and beyond the industry average. Genetic sequencing machines split open cells, reading billions of data points. Occasional points of data will inevitably come from cells with damaged DNA, lacking as a representative of your overall body. To combat this, GeneSavvy reads each location multiple times from many different cells. Instead of reading data points once or twice (like many consumer genetic testing companies), GeneSavvy reads these points an average of up to one hundred times (sometimes even thousands of times), enabling confidence around accurate data.
Genes Work Together
Many genetic testing and reporting services use oversimplified correlation data to associate a single gene and phenotype, ignoring complex interactions taking place between genes. As a result, their genetic data gives an incomplete, and often inaccurate, understanding of your genetic makeup. GeneSavvy on the other hand, takes upstream, downstream and co-factor interactions into consideration. In short, this approach is able to produce a much fuller picture of our genetic individuality by looking at how/which genes contribute to human health concerns. Comprehensive genetic networks surrounding diseases, biological functions and more help identify potential targets for clinical action.
GeneSavvy was built to help functional health practitioners utilize millions of biodata points, to design the ultimate patient-centered, personalized and effective treatment plans for every patient. Practitioners can easily identify patient-specific root mechanisms of complex diseases (and with less guesswork) by identifying genetic variants with the highest potential to cause negative impact. GeneSavvy helps reduce overall patient costs, improves patient engagement, and empowers patients with proactive personalized plans that promote optimal health and longevity.
GeneSavvy Starter Kit
It’s time to get started with the most advanced, clinically actionable genetic platform in functional medicine. Their simple saliva collection kit can be used from the comfort of your own home! Once your sample is received, the massive clinical power of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology is utilized to extract your unique genetic information. When your customized lab processing is complete, GeneSavvy sends a Variant Exploration report that can be shared with your functional medicine team to develop more personalized and more effective health and lifestyle recommendations.
GeneSavvy Variant Exploration Report
This report is included free with the purchase of our GeneSavvy Starter Kit, but if you already have raw genetic data from another testing company, this service is for you! Many other genetic testing companies offer to provide a copy of your raw genetic data in the form of a VCF or TXT file. GeneSavvy can re-evaluate raw data in their system to provide more clinically-actionable information. They won’t be able to provide you the full set of data GeneSavvy Starter Kit provides unless contents of your lab extracts are the same, but GeneSavvy can help you get more mileage out of your existing data.
Remember, Knowledge is Power
Above all, understanding and assessing personal health on a regular basis is the first step to optimization. Whether you’re a doctor or a stay at home parent, GeneSavvy will help you experience genetic testing and true precision medicine. Building a collection of unique genetic data allows you to guide lifestyle choices and daily decisions on your path to being the best you!
