What is Promethease?[edit]

Promethease is a literature retrieval system that builds a personal DNA report based on the scientific literature cited in SNPedia and a file of genotype (DNA) data. Customers of DNA testing services (23andMe, FamilyTreeDNA, Ancestry.com, Complete Genomics, WeGene, ...) can use it to retrieve published data about their DNA completely independent of whichever company produced the data.

  1. This one shows risks when taking medicines called statins
  2. Paid runs include an interactive report

We do not store your genome, so most users remain completely anonymous and private, however these people have shared their real promethease reports as useful examples



Report problems and workarounds at Talk:Promethease or email bugs@promethease.com.

If you'd like to test it, you can use this as test data.

For colorblinded usersː In Promethease you can change the colors of your Promethease report, in order to improve the legibility for colorblind users. Just change the 'Vision' pull-down below and to the left of the pie chart in the sidebar to the right.

Desktop Downloads[edit]

The earliest versions of Promethease ran on a desktop computer, unlike the current version which runs over the web. But there are also many more bug reports related to these versions, because it is hard to support every version of Windows, Mac and Linux, and to deal with firewalls, antivirus apps, and the other differences on each machine. So you can run Promethease from your own machine, and I will still issue refunds for reported bugs, but do understand you're much more likely to have a problem.

Free runs take approximately 24 hours to run. An optional $9 payment per run unlocks extra features and reduces runtime to approximately 10 minutes.

If you have any problems, we're good about refunds, but it can sometimes take 24h before you'll get a response to your mail. Please be patient, and send detailed bug reports to info@snpedia.com. Please notify promptly, as we are unable to issue refunds for transactions after 5 days.
