Happy DNA Day!

This isn't a "deal" but a post about an ongoing offer that many people don't know about.

Genes for Good is offering a free DNA test for the completion of 35 health surveys.

https://genesforgood.sph.umich.edu/

Each survey covers a different topic and most only take three or four minutes to complete.

I see they posted on their site saying that Facebook is having a problem with a redirect on mobile but it works on desktop.

I really wanted to do this, but you have to go in through facebook and I will not use facebook.

Thanks, OP, great for a lot of people.

I've already completed the study and got my results so I figured I'd share my timeline so others know what to expect. Smilie

1/7/17 - Joined and started filling out surveys
1/10/17 - Qualified for spit kit
1/11/17 - Spit kit shipped
1/24/17 - Spit kit received at lab
3/22/17 - Results ready

So essentially give it about 2 months after your test is received.

In graphical (easy to read and interpret) form, they give you some ancestry information but they also give you the raw data to download that you can upload to other sites to interpret. Essentially what other DNA test services like 23andme or Ancestry.com do.
