Price drop for getting your DNA tested

23andMe is proud to announce a major step toward our goal of democratizing genetic information by giving our customers access to even more of their SNP data through our next generation custom content, all at a lower price.

With the introduction of v2, our next-generation analytical platform, 23andMe customers will have access to an even more powerful set of SNPs we use to probe their unique genetic composition. And thanks to advances by Illumina, the provider of our genetic analysis technology, that information will now be available at the reduced price of $399. By making genetic data more affordable and accessible, we hope this development will spur the evolution of personal genomics as a potent force not just in science but also in medicine and everyday life.
