It's strange to think DNA-revealing technology has not been around for that long, but you can now see your full genome sequencing revealed in a smartphone app. The myGenome app from Veritas Genetics displays full genome sequences for only $1000 USD.

DNA companies such as 23andme make some of your genetic information available, but with myGenome consumers anywhere can get access to all of it. This not only helps with the early diagnosis and effective management of many diseases, it also gives you personalized results when it comes to more general lifestyle decisions by showing you unknown but useful traits and custom news articles that are relevant to your DNA in particular.

Veritas Genetics is the first to offer full genome sequencing as a comparatively affordable consumer product.
