“Computerized analysis of genetic profiles via internet portals” patent issues for inventors Dawn Irion, Tom Boyd, Kevin Jones, Mark Boyd and Michael Boyd of Knoxville, TN.
A computer-implemented process and apparatus for storing, accessing, and comparing genetic profiles in a form suitable for amateur human analysis is provided. The process includes imputing and storing data that represent individual genetic profiles which have been created using conventional genetic analysis processes. The process and apparatus allow remote consumer access via the internet to genetic profiles owned by consumer which can then be compared against other genetic profiles according to a genetic profile comparison process selected from several available processes. The resulting output of the process is a summary of the genetic profile comparison which answers the question posed by the consumer.
