How it works
What happens after ordering the kit from our trusted sequencing providers.

Your web account

Your Genomes.io web account connects to your DNA Vault and allows you to add to and view your data.
  • Activate
    Following ordering DNA sequencing from our trusted sequencing providers, you will receive your saliva collection kit. Before sending it back to us, you must first activate your kit and set up your DNA Vault.
  • Surveys
    Once you have set up your web account, you can begin taking our surveys. Doing so generates health, lifestyle and other data that boosts the value of your genomic data to researchers, meaning you can earn more.
  • Reports
    Explore your whole genome and receive reports. We start with a carrier status report giving you information on whether you are a carrier for certain genetic diseases. More reports will be made available over time.
  • Balance
    Keep track of your earnings. You can earn by taking our surveys, uploading data, inviting friends and granting access to your genome. The Balance tab shows your balance, earning history, and allows you to deposit and withdraw.

Your mobile app

Your Genomes.io mobile app connects to your DNA Vault and gives you (and you only) control over access to your genome.
  • Connect
    Download the Genomes.io application from the App or Google Play Store. Select New Authenticator on your app and scan your unique QR code in the Activate Kit flow on the website. This establishes connection between your mobile app to your DNA Vault.
  • Actions
    View the details of access requests to your genome. This includes the creator of the request (e.g. researcher), what information will be revealed, and how much you will earn for granting permission. Also view a historical log of how your data has been accessed.
  • Wallet
    Keep track of your earnings. You can earn by taking our surveys, uploading data, inviting friends and granting access to your genome. Your wallet shows your balance, earning history, and allows you to deposit and withdraw.
  • Settings
    Adjust permission settings for third-parties to access your genome. Change your back-up 12 word encryption seed phrase. Protect your app by setting/changing your lock screen PIN code.
