  • What is F.A.M.E.?

    F.A.M.E. stands for ‘Food As Medicine Every day’. It was Hypocrates, the father of modern medicine, who had coined this phrase some 2500 years ago which simply means that we must consume food from the Mother Nature’s natural food-chain ecosystem that works like medicine in our body. F.A.M.E is absolutely an inexpensive way of being healthy through simple and natural ways.
  • What is Nutrigenomics?

    Nutrigenomics or Nutritional Genomics is relatively a new scientific discipline that uses modern genomics technology to study the inter-relationship between genes, nutrition and health. It has long been apparent that some people respond differently from others, to foods. We all know that the right foods can be therapeutic in nature, especially if they are consumed in accordance with one’s genetic profile. Nutrigenomics allows us to understand how our genes affect our behaviour and response to foods, beverages and the supplements we consume.It also affects how our foods impact our gene expression.
  • What exactly is ‘Welocity Genetics’ Genetic Profiling or DNA testing?

    ‘Welocity Genetics’ DNA testing is an extremely insightfulnutrigenomics based comprehensive predictive healthcare program. It includes geneticprofiling through once-in-a-lifetime non-invasive saliva based DNA Test(currently with 210 Phenotypes), a personalgenetic report with scientific analysis and an insightful genetic counselling. Based on the genetic findings, we offer personalized recommendations that include gene-based diet plans, bespoke exercise regimen and customized lifestyle corrections along with Wellness Help Desk assistance for a period of 12 months and gene-banking facility for a period of 6 years.
  • What is DNA? Is DNA and genetics the same?

    DNA stands for Deoxyribonucleic acid. It is a long, complex and self-replicating molecule that carries the genetic code or instructions used in the growth, development, functioning and reproduction of all known living organisms. It is the main constituent of chromosomes. The studies of the DNA that includes heredity and the variation of inherited characteristics, is broadly called genetics. Both terms can be interchangeably used for general discussion.
  • Why DNA or Genetics is so highly talked about during the pandemic?

    The pandemic Covid-19 is caused by Corona. Corona is a virus and not bacteria. Most viruses have either RNA or DNA as their genetic material and the nucleic acid may be singleor doublestranded. The entire infectious virus particleconsists of the nucleic acid and an outer shell of (spike) protein. The simplest viruses contain only enough RNA or DNA to encode four proteins. So, during its study of Corona virus, its origin, genetic structure and invention of cure through a vaccine, DNA or genetics is widely used by researchers and scientists and hence genetics is discussed by every researcher. RT – PCR test also is one type of genetic test.
  • How many Phenotypes (Parameters) are included in Welocity Genetics DNA testing?

  • How reliable are Welocity Genetic DNA testing results?

    Welocity Genetics, in collaboration with GenOmbio DNA Lab, use the best-in-class technology all the way from saliva sample collection to genotyping, where our machines are imported from the United States of America. Importantly, the specificity of the test is 100% which means that you can expect 100% accuracy for your SNP calls within your genome sequence.
  • What are SNPs? How critical are they in my genome sequencing?

    SNP stands for Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms. They are single nucleotide variations in your genome sequence. It is important to note a key difference between a SNP and a mutation. A SNP is a single nucleotide variation in the genome sequence that is more common and found in more than 1% of the human population whereasa mutation is a single nucleotide variation in the genome sequence that is rare and found in less than 1% of the human population. Understanding one’s SNPs is very critical in the entire process of DNA profiling as it helps distinguish the variations from one person to the other.
  • How big is my DNA? Can I measure it?

    Your DNA consists of 3 billion base pairs (300 Crores x 2 pairs = 600 Crores) coiled up into 23 pairs of chromosomes. There are 23 x 2 pairs of Chromosomes in each human cell. There is an estimated 37.2 Trillion cells in a healthy adult human body.
  • How many genes does a human cell have?

    Till date genetic researchers have found over 25,000 genes in every cell of the human body. Genetics is a subject of on-going research and there are newer genes that are discovered on an on-going basis.
  • Will my genes change?

    No. Human genes can never change as you cannot change your biological father and mother. They are permanent. However, their expression can change.
  • If my genes cannot change then how will ‘WelocityGenetics’ DNA testingcan help me?

    Though human genes do not change, the way they expressin our body at various age can be regulated with a targeted diet, essential supplements and a healthy lifestyle. For example, if you carry an unfavourable genetic variant, which is detected well in time, you can eat foods that will fix the problem on a genetic level much before they express and create adverse impact in your body.
  • How would my Welocity Genetics DNA test report help me? Can it cure diseases?

    Welocity Genetics DNA testing is an extremely promising piece of predictive healthcare analysis at a genetic level. Hence, if you sincerely follow all the recommendations made in the report and the subsequent Action Plan and incorporate all the changes in your diet and lifestyle with the help of our in-houseNutrigenomics counsellors, you have a high chance of preventing diseases.

  • Will my Welocity Genetics DNA testing results last for a lifetime?

    Yes. Your Welocity Genetics DNA testing results do last for a lifetime. However, since we are only genotyping 210 Phenotypes with some select variants in your DNA sequence that have been studied so far to have significant effect, their effect will not change. Also, new discoveries in this fast growing field may provide new insights into existing and newer genetic variants that have not yet been tested. This is why it may be valuable and highly recommended to upgrade your test periodically so that you can be on top of the latest geneticresearch and new breakthroughs in this field.

  • Will my Welocity Genetics DNA test report be delayed beyond the stipulated time? If yes, what are the reasons?

    Yes. Your Welocity Genetics DNA test report may be delayed beyond the stipulated 21 working days in the event your saliva sample is contaminate giving poor DNA yield. In this case, the machines cannot capture adequate genetic data and hence the sample needs to be re-runin the next immediate batchwhich can cause unnecessary delay. However, even after the re-run if the adequate raw DNA data is not captured, the lab will declare the sample as contaminated and rejects it. In such an event customerneeds to buy a fresh DNA Sample collection kit for Rs. 1000/- that includes 18% GST and shipping charges and resend the sample.
  • What are the primary reasons for the saliva sample to be contaminated?

    The quality of your saliva sample could be poor due to not following the saliva sample collection instructions properly. For instance, if you have not fasted for 30 minutes before the sample collection or not rinsed your mouth with clean water before 10 minutes prior to spitting or if there is still food or tobacco stuck in your mouth or if you have touched the funnel with your fingers before the sample collection or lips have touched the funnel during sample collection, the saliva sample collected could be of poor quality which will result in unnecessary delay and waste of time, money and efforts. So kindly watch the video multiple times to familiarize with the simple procedure.
  • What is Gene Banking? What will happen to my DNA sample?
