    Hi folks,

    I'm interested in using my 23& Me data to now understand my psyche better and am wondering if theres any 3rd party programmes (like Valentijn's 1% database) and Genetic Genie etc. into which I can feed the 23& Me data and get some 'risk factor' data on potential mental illnesses.

    Looking at Schizophrenia for example, apparently theres a multitude of genes that might contribute to it so they tend to use GWAS (Genome Wide Analysis Score?) to mark you on all the at risk genes so you have some idea as to your risk factor...
