"The genetics revolution is well underway and 2011 had some amazing developments," stated Anne Wojcicki, co-founder and CEO of 23andMe. "23andMe is dedicated to keeping consumers up to date on the latest genetic discoveries and helping them understand what those discoveries mean for them. This list represents just a snapshot of some of the most intriguing developments."  

Customers of 23andMe have the opportunity to learn about how their genetics can influence their individual health traits, risk for developing certain diseases and conditions, reactions to a variety of medications, and ancestry. Throughout the year, 23andMe monitors scientific publications for studies that provide exciting glimpses into these areas. The company provides information on these developments to its customers through continual updates to their Health and Traits reports, as well as "SNPwatch" postings to the company's public blog, "The Spittoon."

While 23andMe provides updates on genetic research on a regular basis, it recognizes and cautions that in most cases more studies are needed before the research can provide information of specific value to individuals. 23andMe therefore states that the studies described in The Spittoon's SNPwatch series are for research and educational purposes only. SNPwatch is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice and individuals should always seek the advice of their physician or other approp
