If your application is successful, you will get genotyped by 23andMe. We will order you a gift kit which will be delivered to your address. This gift kit includes the spit kit (which you can use to send your saliva sample back to 23andMe – the shipping fees are included in this) as well as full access to the 23andMe community, latest research findings etc. for 12 months. There is no subscription, so after a year this "premium" access will terminate automatically, you don't have to quit this for yourself.
If you need any help during the application process let us know. You can contact @openSNPorg or @gedankenstuecke on Twitter or write us an eMail to email@example.com
Cheers,Fabian, Philipp, Helge & Bastian (the openSNP team)
