My Genome (scan), My Life April 13, 2011

Posted by ramunas in cancer genetics.

Today is a good day. I can not imagine a better day than personal birthday (and forthcoming DNA Day) to share my personal genome scan information, which you can find in the cloudy GitHub HERE* [GenomeScan_RJv2].
This is quite low density profile generated through 23andMe v.2 genotyping on Illumina Hap550+ array while a year ago.
I would appreciate any insightful information anyone will find there 🙂

An amazing book written by BRCA2 positive cancer survivor and clinical geneticist: “Positive Results: Making the Best Decisions When You’re at High Risk for Breast or Ovarian Cancer”,which is now in my hands and hungry eyes.

This is very informative and up-to-date single reference for all (women and men) who are at increased genetic risk due to BRCA1/2 mutations, as well as clinicians dealing with these patients.

This source i’ll definitely now include in my recommendations for high risk women, along with FORCE and a free gift of Liv Breast Self-Exam Kit kindly provided by Association for Hereditary Cancer (PVAS).
