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. Ben Lynch’s research team has identified key SNPs which are clinically relevant – and more importantly – which ones are not. You can upload raw genetic data from either 23andMe or Ancestry.

Is StrateGene right for you? StrateGene isn’t for everyone. Is it right for you? In this video, Dr. Ben 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. Ben 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:
What does StrateGene provide?
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.
The SNPs analyzed and reported by Ancestry are different from those available from the most up-to-date version of 23andMe.
See below for more detail on which polymorphisms are analyzed by each option.
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 the 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.
Key Resources to Help You Use StrateGene
If you’re a health professional, we recommend taking advantage of the professional membership for further clinical support, including:
The security and privacy of your genetic data is of the utmost importance to Seeking Health. After you upload your raw data via an encrypted web session, it is immediately stripped of personally identifiable information. The anonymous “code name” you choose is used instead of your personal information to connect you with your StrateGene report.
During processing, the SNP data needed for the StrateGene analysis is extracted, and the 23andme file is deleted completely. The extracted SNP data is not stored with any personally identifiable information, but may be retained for statistical analysis.
As an added layer of protection, your finished StrateGene report is only accessible for a short time before the file is deleted. That is why it is so important for you to download and save your file to a secure location on your own computer right away once it is ready.
Who does the 23andMe v5 chip effect? It effects people who ran reports earlier than August 2017, then they will get a full StrateGene report
What is missing from the 23andMe v5 chip? It is not missing much. Please see Dr Lynches article reguarding the changes- https://www.drbenlynch.com/23andme-v5-chip/
How does StrateGene differ from Livewello and MTHFR Support? StrateGene provides only well-researched SNPs that have clinical relevance. Our research team hand-picks each SNP based on strict criteria.
Can the general public order StrateGene? Yes!
Can I use Ancestry.com raw data? Unfortunately no. We chose not to offer this because Ancestry.com has significantly less clinically relevant SNPs compared to 23andMe raw data.
Where do I download my raw data from 23andMe? You will need to visit this link, https://you.23andme.com/tools/data/download/ where you may be asked to log in. From there, instructions will be provided and be sure “All DNA” is selected in the “Data set” drop down. Finally click the Download Data button to initiate the download.
When and where do I send you my 23andMe data? You will be prompted to upload your 23andMe data into your StrateGene report after you have purchased it and accessed the report inside of your Dashboard.
