What We Will Do With Your DNA
When you join All of Us, we will ask if you will let researchers study your DNA. If you agree and provide blood or saliva, we will analyze the DNA in the samples. Two ways we will
do this are by:
- Genotyping, which looks at a small amount of DNA that gives us information about many of the common DNA differences among us
- Whole genome sequencing, which looks at almost all of your DNA
If researchers want to study DNA information from our participants, they must complete special training first. They also must agree to follow the rules and values of All of Us by signing our Data User Code of Conduct. Researchers will not be able to see personal details like your name or where you live.
