MyGenome empowers you to explore a real human genome, find out about possible health implications, and view reports about important genetic variations. The MyGenome app provides a simple, intuitive and educational interface for genome exploration and learning.

The MyGenome app features:
•Actual genome of Illumina CEO, Jay Flatley (donated for educational purposes)
•Genome Map, Health Cards and Reports to explore the wealth of information that can be obtained through accessing the genome
•Video journey into the genome

Key Features:

Genome Map
•Tour the landscape of chromosomes and see how genetic variants in different locations translate into health impacts or biological traits.
•View individual genes, their locations, and biological impacts
•Visualize where and how genome sequences differ from the "reference" human genome
•Learn how much we understand about the variation in the human genome and how much more we have to learn

Health Cards
•Explore disease risks, genetically determined conditions and predispositions, and carrier traits
•Discover how different genetic variants contribute to health risks and can be passed on to children
•Find out how changes in the genome affect drug response

•Investigate the possible health impacts of genetic variants for > 200 conditions!
•See reports that illustrate how genetic information will likely be delivered in the future and used by medical professionals.

Soon, you and your physician will be able to sequence, download and explore your own genome. To learn more about individual genome sequencing or to find out about upcoming MyGenome app store releases, please visit
