Genetics

Our DNA is located in the nucleus of every cell and is organised into structures called chromosomes. This DNA is unique for everyone, it is passed down through generations and contains the genetic instructions necessary for the proper development and functioning of our body.

Our DNA consists of sequences of four nucleotides (A: adenine, C: citosine, G: guanine y T: thymine) which are repeated randomly throughout its structure.


The set of DNA of a person is called the genome which is made of genes. A gene is a specific region of DNA that influences a particular characteristic in an organism (eye color, height or diabetes predisposition).

For each position of the genome there is a variant considered normal (A, C, G or T), being majority in the general population. However, people might have a difference in a single DNA building block, which in some genes means a change or genetic variation. These changes may help to predice the risk of developing particular diseases or predict an individual´s response to certain drugs.

To study this, the person who will perform the test should take a saliva sample. Then, the sample is sent to the laboratory where it will be analyzed according to the genetic variants panel developed by Making Genetics. These results are the interpreted by our company and the patient directly receive their genetic report. It can also be easily displayed on the computed or electronic devices of the health professional that has recommended the test.

Making Genetics offers the following genetic panels -including genetic variants- to companies, distribution channels or professional researchers.
