LOS ANGELES, Dec. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sequencing.com, now the world's fastest growing community for people with genetic data, and Titanovo, Inc., a groundbreaking personal genomics company, have announced that Titanovo's apps are currently available in Sequencing.com's industry first App Market for DNA.
Sequencing.com provides free and unlimited genetic data storage for everyone that is both HIPAA and Privacy Shield compliant. A person can easily upload and store genetic data into his or her own confidential account. Access to the data is never sold to any third parties. People can then find apps in Sequencing.com's App Market that will transform their genetic data into meaningful information.
Titanovo's apps use a person's genetic data to generate actionable wellness information. Their innovative apps use a carefully curated and ever-expanding database of scientific publications on the associations between genes and lifestyle.
Included in Sequencing.com's App Market are Titanovo's popular DNA Diet Coach and DNA Fitness Coach apps. The DNA Diet Coach allows a person to determine his or her optimal diet for weight loss as well as other dietary advice such as a person's ideal amounts of vitamins, nutrients, and macronutrients to consume daily. The app also analyzes whether certain foods should be avoided like gluten, dairy, caffeine, and alcohol. The app's nutritional insights are tailored to each person based on the individual's genes as well as the individual's dietary habits including vegetarian, paleo or Mediterranean diets.
Additionally, the DNA Diet Coach can be integrated with Titanovo's telomere length test, which measures telomeres, a biomarker that becomes shorter with poor health and age. A person may test his or her telomere length and vitamin/nutrient deficiencies simultaneously - then follow their nutritional progress on the genomic level with subsequent telomere length testing.
The DNA Fitness Coach app builds upon scientific research that genetic analysis can help create a more effective fitness regimen. This includes information about a person's optimal balance between cardio exercise and weight training, the most effective heart rate for ideal training and what sports a person is likely to excel at. The app provides actionable, simple to understand information that allows a person to obtain a wide-range of fitness goals including losing weight, getting in shape or even competing professionally.
Sequencing.com is uniquely designed to be able to securely store and process genetic data from any genetic test. When app developers add their apps to the App Market, the apps automatically gain full compatibility with genetic data produced by all genetic testing services. This includes data produced from Whole Genome Sequencing, exome sequencing, microarrays and genealogy-focused DNA tests as well as testing offered by Illumina, Titanovo, 23andMe, National Geographic and Ancestry.com. Sequencing.com's universal genetic data capability allows apps to be become compatible with genetic data from any genetic test while being sold in the world's largest app marketplace for DNA.
Titanovo CEO Dr. Oleksandr Savsunenko commented, "The Titanovo team is pleased to offer our apps through Sequencing.com's intuitive App Market, which has enabled us to instantly make the DNA Diet Coach and DNA Fitness Coach apps available to everyone who has had a genetic test." He continued, "The scientific and nutritional communities are in agreement that genetics play a key role in diet and fitness, and that one-size fits all approaches are ineffective. We look forward to working with Sequencing.com to introduce the world to genetically tailored lifestyles."
Titanovo, which in addition to apps also provides its own genetic testing services, has joined Sequencing.com's Preferred Provider Network of genetic testing companies. All Preferred providers have been prescreened by Sequencing.com to ensure they provide highly reputable genetic testing services and outstanding customer service. The genetic data generated by these providers is easily imported into Sequencing.com and is fully compatible with all other apps in the App Market as well as mobile apps that use Sequencing.com's Real-Time Personalization® technology.
Dr. Brandon Colby, Chief Executive Officer of Sequencing.com, stated that "Titanovo's beautifully designed, highly actionable apps are an outstanding addition to Sequencing.com's App Market." Dr. Colby added that "Since their launch, the Sequencing.com community has been quick to embrace Titanovo's app's as favorites and their apps have already become bestsellers in our App Market."
Apps in Sequencing.com's App Market help people unlock genetic data's tremendous value. By providing first-of-its-kind solutions for turning genetic data into meaningful information, Sequencing.com and Titanovo are at the forefront of the personal genomics revolution.
Sequencing.com's first-of-its-kind HIPAA and Privacy Shield compliant community allows people to obtain meaning and value from their genes.
