The 23andMe+ Experience
Gain access to reports and tools that are only available with a membership to 23andMe+. Some of our favorite new reports and features are:
- Pharmacogenetics Reports* including Medication Insights: 23andMe Pharmacogenetics reports can tell you if you have specific DNA variants in three genes that may influence how you process certain medications.
- Exclusive Health reports Powered by 23andMe Research: Atrial Fibrillation, Coronary Artery Disease, High Blood Pressure, LDL Cholesterol, Migraine, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, and more.
- Get exclusive genetic insights based on pioneering 23andMe research. Rather than looking at a few genetic markers that individually can have a big impact on a person's risk for a condition, these reports, powered by polygenic scores, take into account hundreds or thousands of genetic markers that all have a small impact on likelihood for a condition. When combined together into a polygenic score, they can provide information about someone's genetic likelihood of developing a condition.
- Advanced Ancestry features: Use new filters to better search and find genetic matches, and view up to three times more DNA relatives
New Personalized Health Reports
Pharmacogenetics Reports* including Medication Insights
23andMe+ members will receive access to the new 23andMe Pharmacogenetics reports, which can help you understand if you have specific DNA variants in three genes that may influence how you process several medications.

*23andMe PGS Pharmacogenetics reports: The 23andMe test uses qualitative genotyping to detect 6 variants in 3 genes in the genomic DNA of adults from saliva for the purpose of reporting and interpreting information about the processing of certain therapeutics to inform discussions with a healthcare professional. It does not describe if a person will or will not respond to a particular therapeutic and does not describe the association between detected variants and any specific therapeutic. Results should be confirmed by an independent genetic test that is prescribed by your own healthcare professional before taking any medical action. Warning: Test information should not be used to start, stop, or change any course of treatment and does not test for all possible variants that may affect metabolism or protein function. The PGS test is not a substitute for visits to a healthcare professional. Making changes to your current regimen can lead to harmful side effects or reduced intended benefits of your medication, therefore consult with your healthcare professional before taking any medical action.
