Genewize Pre-Launch Meeting in Orlando

Tonight, Genewize presented some impressive information at their Pre-Lauch meeting in Orlando Florida.  Genewize is poised to launch its products nationally on August 1st, 2008.  Their message is simple; “Genetic Harmony” – by testing your DNA and identifying 12 key SNPs – Genewize creates personalized (genetically guided) supplements, perfectly  tailored for your needs.

What is a SNP?  Here is the technical explination

A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP, pronounced snip), is a DNA sequence variation occurring when a single nucleotide – A, T, C, or G – in the genome (or other shared sequence) differs between members of a species (or between paired chromosomes in an individual). For example, two sequenced DNA fragments from different individuals, AAGCCTA to AAGCTTA, contain a difference in a single nucleotide. In this case we say that there are two alleles : C and T. Almost all common SNPs have only two alleles. For a variation to be considered a SNP, it must occur in at least 1% of the population.
