Overlay your SNPs or that of your patient's SNPs onto the Pathway Planner using StrateGene Strategic Genetic Analysis! After two years of digging through research, Dr. Lynch's research team has identified key SNPs which are clinically relevant – and more importantly – which ones are not.
Is StrateGene right for you?
StrateGene isn’t for everyone. Is it right for you? In this video, Dr. Lynch clearly explains who, and who shouldn’t, use StrateGene.
With StrateGene you can quickly learn about potential issues by overlaying your SNPs or those of your patient’s onto the Pathway Planners covering the important folate, methionine, transsulfuration, biopterin, and histamine pathways.
What is StrateGene?
StrateGene is a genetic reporting tool that uses 23andMe data.
By limiting report data to well-researched SNPs, a qualified health care practitioner is able to formulate a targeted testing and treatment plan – faster.
For the last two years, Dr. Lynch and his research team have analyzed SNP after SNP.
In order for the SNP to meet inclusion criteria, it had to meet these standards:
- The SNP is found in 23andMe (current or past chips)*
- The SNP is found in a gene that belongs to a biochemical pathway that is covered by StrateGene.
- There is a critical mass of published research related to the SNP.
- The SNP has potential clinical implications as determined by published research.
What does StrateGene provide?
- SNPs identified by 23andMe.
- Well-researched SNPs.
- Factors which influence each SNP.
- Description of each SNP.
- Kinetic variation.
- Associated conditions and symptoms according to research.
How is StrateGene laid out?
Section 1 – Overview tables of known SNPs with gene, rsid, variant name, risk allele, and genotype. In addition “GSTT1 deletion”, if detected, plus the predicted NAT2 acetylator phenotype.
Section 2 – Results for each pathway with description, SNPs overlaid onto Pathway Planners, and details on SNPs found. The gene and SNP details include influencing factors on genes, SNP kinetic impact, and potential associated symptoms and conditions.
Section 3 – A discussion of “bonus SNPs”. These are SNPs for which there is not yet Pathway Planner graphics available, but which the research team wanted to include for added value.
Genes Evaluated by StrateGene

Which SNPs are missing from the new 23andme v5?
If you purchased 23andMe after July 2017, you may have noticed some missing SNPs from your report. You can get all of the details on this update here.
The clinically-relevant SNPs no longer available in StrateGene:
rs6323 MAOA. rs1137070. MAOA. Same as above.
rs1799836. MAOB. rs10156191. AOC1/ABP1/DAO.
- i3002468. HFE.
Should I order 23andMe still?
If you have not yet run 23andMe, you may still benefit from it if you are ok with not having the above SNPs in your results. It is still a good value for $99.
Who may order StrateGene?
Both health professionals and general public may order StrateGene – Strategic Genetic Analysis.
If you are a patient, we recommend using the Physician Directory to receive advice with regard to how to use the information in the StrateGene report.
