BRCA1 Test


The tool is filed under factoids, which means unreliable information that is mentioned too often so that people believe it as a fact. So, please use it only for fun. Just because you have a gene or a mutation does not mean it is always expressed. Personally, I don't believe too much on this stuff because there are way too many parameters involved. Hence, use this tool to find fun facts and if you notice the result requires health attention then please visit a physician and do proper tests and confirm.


BRCA1 Test is a tool to test if you are positive for BRCA1 mutation. Hence, positive means, it's mostly positive but negative means, it is only negative for the mentioned particular type of BRCA1 mutation. The tool supports FTDNA, 23andMe v3 and Ancestry but not 23andMe v4. The only way to confirm is by doing an actual test.

Prerequisites:
Usage: Browse and select the Autosomal raw file.
