Easy as Pie
By Noelle Adams
Where is my pie chart? It’s the question many people ask after getting their DNA analysis results. Companies like Ancestry and MyHeritage have been marketing these increasingly popular kits to consumers with colorful images of a Pie chart to visually help break down the various geographic/ethnic origins of a person’s genetic makeup. However, when Customers get their results back, they usually look something like this:
Hardly something you can show the neighbors.
Not only is it unsightly, but understanding it can be difficult and consumers have not liked the confusion that often results from such a layout. In fact it’s one of the biggest complaints in the industry. Companies have recently taken steps to correct this, by providing interactive maps and digital percentage lists but the results are still not printable in any kind of visually pleasing format and can still be difficult to read.
Niki and Jeannette spent years speaking to Consumers from all over the world who have been clamoring for a way to take their genetic history and proudly display it. One customer stated:
“I’m proud of my heritage! I want something I can put on my wall or on my coffee table so I can show people!”
Another Customer said: “The original (DNA) breakdown is just so confusing! I wish there was an easier way to read it.”
For these customers, and the millions of others like them, I am proud to introduce DNA & ME!
