Members of our Research Team are headed to San Diego for the annual meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics! Stop by booth #1225 to learn more about collaborating with or working for 23andMe, or check out one of our 15 scientific presentations. Learn more here.
Apps, wearables, and other novel means of phenotypic data collection are transforming the way we study large cohorts. To foster more scientific exchange between scientists using innovative phenotyping methods, we are hosting a free one-day meeting at our office in downtown Mountain View. Learn more here.
Our collaboration with Jacqueline Vink at Radboud University, “GWAS of lifetime cannabis use reveals new risk loci, genetic overlap with psychiatric traits, and a causal influence of schizophrenia” is now published at Nature Neuroscience.
Today we are launching our new Populations Collaborations Program, which will provide financial and scientific support for researchers to genotype people in communities around the world who are underrepresented in genomic research. For full details about the program, read more here.
23andMe will be starting a new collaboration with the Broad Institute, adding an additional 1 million research participants to the GIANT Consortium’s study on the genetics of height and obesity. Learn more about this project here.

As Pride Month comes to an end, 23andMe would like to take a moment to celebrate our LGBTQ+ research participants and employees. Whether they’re contributing data or analyzing it, the quality of our science wouldn’t be the same without them.
23andMe researchers have found genetic associations between feeling angry and irritable when hungry, or in other words feeling “hangry.” The results suggest that feeling angry and irritable when hungry may have origins in the genes that govern our personalities and mental health.
