500 GWAS Purpose
The purpose of 500GWAS project of diseasemaps.org is to boost the genetic research of different diseases and conditions to help finding more personalized treatments, faster and more accurate diagnoses, and thus helping people who suffer them.
500 GWAS Method
To participate in this research, you have to fill out a survey with the conditions that you have been diagnosed, as well as the age when you were diagnosed. If you do not have a clear diagnosis or if you have not yet been diagnosed, you must check the box 'I have not yet been diagnosed with this condition.' Then you must upload a file from your RAW genetic analysis. It is a .txt file which you can get from the website where you took the genetic test.
Before 24 hours your genetic information will be deleted from our server and stored in a safe place, preventing possible attacks by third parties that may endanger your privacy.
