Your genes and environment are what makes you who you are. Although humans share close to 99% of their genes, the last 1% accounts for our appearance, personal health, predispositions, and many other differentiating traits. Essentially, our genes play a huge role in determining our individual attributes. Multiple studies in human genetics have revealed associations between genes and personal traits among humans.
PictoGene will tell you about your personal traits relating to Health and Wellness based on your genetic blueprint. We use pictograms also called “picto” to explain you the complex topics of personal human genetics.
