In the 23andMe comparison features, you can compare your results with the results of the following profiles:
Your owned profiles
If you have multiple profiles in your account, you will be able to compare them to each other.
Your genome sharing connections
You can view your existing sharing connections in Manage Sharing or you can extend a new sharing invitation one of two ways:
- The DNA Relatives feature, to compare with your genetic relatives
- The Genome Sharing feature, to compare with your friends and family
When extending or accepting a sharing invitation, you will be able to choose the level of your information shared with that individual.
If you don't have anyone linked to your account, you can still compare yourself to anonymous Chinese, Japanese, and Nigerian donors whose samples were collected as part of the International HapMap Project. These are not "average" Chinese/Japanese/Nigerian genotypes, but genotypes of actual people.
You will also have access to our example European family, the Mendels. If you'd prefer not to see the Mendels or the HapMap people in your account, go to your Account Settings and uncheck the boxes under "Example Profiles."
