I’ve talked about sending away for this for awhile. Finally I did:
Dear Jeremy Freese,
Thank you for your order! Soon you will be one of the first people in the world to have access to your genetic information. 23andMe enables you to explore over 500,000 data points throughout your entire genome. You will be able to learn about your own DNA and compare yourself genetically to family and friends in the 23andMe database.
We will ship your kit(s) as soon as your payment is approved. Depending on which shipping option you chose, you should receive yours within a few days. Please collect and ship your sample(s) to the laboratory at your earliest convenience.
Order ID: [order ID number]
Number of people to be genotyped in your order: 1
Order Subtotal: [price]
Order Total: [price]
Each kit will include detailed instructions, but please note:
– Each kit is labeled with the name of the person for whom it was ordered. It is important that each person use the kit specifically designated for him/her.
– You must log onto https://www.23andme.com/, enter the claim code listed on your kit and follow the instructions to set up an account. We recommend you do this before or immediately after you spit.
Your genetic profile will be ready approximately 10 weeks after our laboratory receives your samples. You will receive an email notification from us at that time. If you have questions or need assistance, please email us at email@example.com.
I will keep you posted. I’ve thought about asking my mother and father if I could buy kits for them.
