Gene sequencing technology gives medical professionals insight into hereditary health problems, and now this app is delivering genome-related news to people with relevant DNA. The Genetic Compass app from Genome Compass is described as a "personalized genomic news reader."

To use the Genetic Compass app you upload your genomic data (which is available from third party organizations such as 23andMe) and then receive articles that apply to your individual gene sequencing information. This could be anything from gene-linked diseases to responses to certain drugs. The educational and entertaining app doesn't store, share or collect your genomic information either, so it is safe for those concerned with privacy. There is also the option of using the app to follow non-customized genetics news including industry experts and doctors.
