Integrating genetics and psychology
Human personality and behaviour is an area affected by multiple factors. Karmagenes through its unique methodology takes an in depth look into the two most well accepted ones:
Nature - through its DNA test and Nurture - through its advanced pyschometric tool to offer you unprecedented insights.
At Karmagenes, we are devoted to deliver the ultimate product quality; hence, we ensure to use the latest in DNA sequencing technology in our ISO certified Swiss Partners Laboratories.Unlocking the secrets behind what makes you unique starts with a simple saliva DNA test. From something so small we give you exciting information that can have a big effect in your life.
DNA modifications that Karmagenes score for, known as Single Nucleotides Polymorphism (SNP), are extracted from high quality, scientifically peer reviewed, research papers available in the United States National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health called PubMed.
Karmagenes i5, our tailored psychological assessment tool built by our professional psychologist with the core values of the most used, researched and accepted personality paradigm, the big 5 dimensions of personalities known simply as the “Big 5”.
"No one have a better or worse type of genes it is the diversity that is crucial"
DNA is the code of life and is found in every living thing and eventually in every single cell of our body. DNA is identical up to 99% between different people yet each individual have a unique set of DNA. This uniqueness is maintained by over 30 million variants constituting a platform for researchers to discover, study and document their implications on our health and behaviour.
"When it comes to factor analysis decoding, both the shared and the individual variations are useful in understanding personality"
Five factor model that describes five basics human personality traits regardless of language or culture derived from statistical analyses of which traits tend to co-occur in people's descriptions of themselves or other people. The Big Five is now the most widely accepted and used model of personality to study personality in terms of how it changes over time and how it relates to other variables.
"Objectivity and Perception, Meet yourself"
Karmagenes proprietary algorithm builds a personalized profile from the information obtained from the tailored Karmagenes i5 psychological assessment and the 14 different behavioral characteristics information extracted from the DNA sample.
Our proprietary algorithm is constructed on a polygenic approach that links multiple SNPs and Genes with each of the 14 behavioral characteristics in a unique, novel and accurate manner.
