Free genome testing by Trugenetics

UPDATE : The trugentics test does not look as comprehensive as first anticipated. It seems to only looks for variants, and so mutants likely will not be noted. Also , it only details variants associated with certain health conditions. This likely will not include TMAU. It's likely they do not test FMO3 at all
see terms and conditions

At the moment, the reasons for what is known on the forums as 'fecal body odor'(syndrome) is still undefined, but a genetic factor is suspected, with FMO3 being one of the main suspects.

DNA testing will in the long-term likely prove to be important both for individuals and the group.

Currently, a lab called Trugenetics is offering people the chance to test their whole genome (all of their DNA) for free. Presumably this is so they can build up a database which later on they can use to compare fee-paying samples etc.

How useful this will be to those with metabolic body odor cannot be predicted here; for instance we don't have a full understanding of what the results will actually mean (e.g. does the FMO3 info give the same info that the TMAU DNA test does ?).

Nevertheless, it is free, so it was thought worthy of mention. The lab is in Seattle and the samples are taken from saliva. Also be aware that it will likely show any predisposition for other illnessess perhaps, and so may be life-changing. It is mentioned here mainly as a potential shortcut for FMO3 DNA testing and perhaps may show info on other smell-associated enzymes too (such as Isovaleric acidemia).
