Giving back with Color
We can all contribute to the fight against hereditary disorders. By using Color genetic testing, you are helping to advance genetics research. Researchers can use anonymous genetic information to study disease risk.
Helping uncover links between genetics and disease
Color contributes anonymized genetic variants to public databases to uncover links between genetics and disease. ClinVar is a free, publicly accessible database managed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). It provides a centralized resource to collect information on genetic variants so that researchers can uncover more links between genetics and disease, thereby advancing medicine.
To support this worthwhile endeavor, Color anonymizes genetic variants that are identified and adds them to ClinVar, and potentially other similar public databases in the future. This is not an external research study, but rather a database that is used to uncover more links between genetics and disease. No personal information about you is provided in conjunction with the variant.
Because every person deserves to know
Color For All partners with top research hospitals and clinics to ensure genetic testing is available to all women and men—regardless of their financial situation.
Testing relatives is important
If an individual has a mutation, there is a 50% chance that each of their first-degree relatives has it too. We offer genetic testing to parents, siblings, and adult children of people with mutations that Color covers for just $199, rather than the normal $249 price.
