New 23andMe Data

I recently downloaded my new raw data from 23andMe and am making it publicly available. This genetic data was generated using the latest v3 chip, which allows them to provide predictions for Alzheimer’s disease risk based on markers in the APOE gene.

Two bloggers in the genetics world have good overviews of the new update:

• Razib Khan: 23andMe v3 Chip & Me

• Dr. Daniel MacArthur: 23andMe Releases Results for Major Alzheimer’s Risk Marker

As with the v2 version of my raw data from 23andMe, I uploaded the raw data to a public Dropbox folder for anyone to download and explore using bioinformatics tools.

Here’s the link:
