Thanks for your interest in getting genotyped and making your data available. Up to March 30th you can apply to get genotyped through the funding we got from the German WikiMedia foundation. For your application, we need some information about you, where you live etc. If we get more applications than we can pay for, we will try to make the best choice of participants. We think of people who may have rare diseases or phenotypes or in general may not fit the typical study design which often consists of male, white students inside the United States, as this group is already overrepresented in genetical studies.
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
