Helix

From SNPedia

Helix provides inexpensive ($30) initial sequencing, but does not provide raw data for that price. Instead they provide various add ons each for an additional charge.

The two offerings that are relevant to SNPedia and Promethease are

  • National Geographic Geno 2.0 Next Generation test: autosomal data is available and supported by promethease, but +$69 only gets you ~5000 snps known to SNPedia, which is far smaller than most other DTC services. To generate a Promethease report from this data, uploading the entire .zip file is the simplest and best option.
  • exome with a downloadable gVCF file for = $499
