Anyone participating in the Tapestry DNA TEST?

Posted by dazlin @dazlin, Oct 19 5:44pm

if you have volunteered or declined to participate, I'd like to here your thoughts. I was on the fence, very undecided, yet I decided to go ahead to do it. I have a few low grade health problems im dealing with , and really dont want to hear anymore. That said, I realize this testing may be of great value at some point. Also its strictly voluntary and can be declined at anytime. I sent mine in today.
Whats your thoughts??

Hi @dazlin. I’m just wondering what the Tapestry DNA test is. Can you explain further? Is there any internet site to go to?

@johnbishop I just quickly looked at the website, I will have to really peruse it tomorrow. It could be interesting if they are still taking applicants.

I am participating. I think it will be interesting and I do have a hereditary disease so hopefully I'll find out more on that.

I received my kit and sent it in yesterday. Theres an ID # on vile you'll receive, don't forget to write it down before you seal it in box. I did forget, so i had to tear open and reseal. I believe the # is so you can view your results online. Not sure if they mail anything back to us. Thanks for your replies.

I am participating. This is my second go-around with the company actually doing the sequencing (Helix). The first time I had to pay a fee. I think is beneficial to know what types of hereditary genes one has (good or bad). I am curious to see how mine changes, if at all.

I enrolled in the Tapestry Study and am very interested in getting the results back. It's just amazing how long it takes to get results. I sent mine in months ago and the results are still not back.

I sent my kit in 2 days ago. I feel that if my results can benefit someone, then I should do it. Mayo has been wonderful to me! I’ll do whatever I can to help them.

Depends on the types of insurance you have. I’m participating for the greater good.

I am participating as I am interested in the results and feel that, if it could be of benefit to someone else through Mayo research, that’s the biggest benefit.

I received my sample kit yesterday and sent it back today. Also filled out a Mayo Clinic Biobank survey that came with it. Since I had previously done the Mayo Clinic GeneGuide test which also used Helix, I had to create a separate account using a different email address which was a little inconvenient. I'm looking forward to seeing the results.

Anyone know how long it takes to receive results?

Hi. I'm participating in it as well. If my memory serves me right, I believe it's going to be a couple of months before we hear anything back.
