Just In Time For Christmas... A Spectacular New DNA Analysis App Has Arrived!
This app compares your DNA to St. Nick's DNA. Yes, this app really does analyze the similarity between you and Santa!
The Full Santa App Story

The Short Santa App Story
Santa’s genome is a 'virtual genome' developed by Sequencing.com’s Bioinformatics Team!
What's a virtual genome? It's a genome we created using algorithms that define a person with all of the traits we know and love about Santa.
We also added DNA sequences from various populations that Santa is thought to have originated from, including Norwegian, Finnish and Turkish populations.
Below are some of the traits that were used to create Santa’s genome:
Packed on a few pounds
A Saint (always nice and never naughty)
A people pleaser
Extremely productive throughout the night
Enjoys carbs and sweets
Incredibly strong (carrying that giant sack of toys)
Risk-taker (sliding down chimneys)
Very long lifespan
Full head of white hair
This app is compatible with most DNA tests including 23andMe, AncestryDNA, and MyHeritage.
Simply upload your DNA data to use this app.
If you haven't yet taken a DNA test, order one of our DNA tests. Our DNA kits make great gifts!
Once your DNA data is stored in your Sequencing.com account, click the app's 'Start' button. You'll usually receive your results within 15 minutes but if all the elves are overwhelmed with so many people using this app, it can take up to a day to complete.
