With StrateGene you can quickly learn about potential issues by overlaying your SNPs or those of your patients onto the Pathway Planners covering the important folate, methionine, transsulfuration, biopterin, and histamine pathways.

What is StrateGene?

StrateGene is a genetic reporting tool that uses AncestryDNA (Version 2 only) OR 23andMe data.

By limiting report data to well-researched SNPs, a qualified health care practitioner is able to formulate a targeted testing and treatment plan – faster.

For the last two years, Dr. Lynch and his research team have analyzed SNP after SNP. In order for the SNP to meet inclusion criteria, it had to meet these standards:
  • The SNP is found in AncestryDNA V2 or 23andMe (current or past chips).
  • The SNP is found in a gene that belongs to a biochemical pathway that is covered by StrateGene.
  • There is a critical mass of published research related to the SNP.
  • The SNP has potential clinical implications as determined by published research.

What genetic tests can be used with StrateGene?

  • AncestryDNA: StrateGene only works with AncestryDNA tests purchased AFTER MAY 2016 (Version 2 only). Not compatible with earlier test data.
  • 23andMe: StrateGene works with all (past and current) 23andMe chips. However, if you purchased 23andMe after August 2017, some SNPs that were available with previous chips will be missing from your report.

Genes Evaluated by StrateGene

The SNPs analyzed and reported by Ancestry are different from those available from the most up-to-date version of 23andMe.

Key differences:

  • You get MAOA, MAOB, and DAO included with Ancestry V2 (not included on 23andMe-based StrateGene reports). These are "Super Seven" Genes!
  • You get a total of 2 more RSID#'s analyzed with Ancestry V2 than with 23andMe.

See below for more detail on which polymorphisms are analyzed by each option.

Should I order 23andMe still?

If you have not yet run 23andMe, you may still benefit from it if you are ok with not having the above SNPs in your results. It is still a good value for $99. If you want your StrateGene results to include MAOA, MAOB, or DAO, consider AncestryDNA V2 instead.

Is StrateGene right for you?

StrateGene isn’t for everyone. Is it right for you? In this video, Dr. Lynch clearly explains who - and who shouldn’t - use StrateGene.

How is StrateGene laid out?

Section 1 – Overview tables of known SNPs with gene, rsid, variant name, risk allele, and genotype. In addition “GSTT1 deletion”, if detected, plus the predicted NAT2 acetylator phenotype.

Section 2 – Results for each pathway with description, SNPs overlaid onto Pathway Planners, and details on SNPs found. The gene and SNP details include influencing factors on genes, SNP kinetic impact, and potential associated symptoms and conditions.

Section 3 – A discussion of “bonus SNPs”. These are SNPs for which there is not yet Pathway Planner graphics available, but which the research team wanted to include for added value.

Who may order StrateGene?

Both wholesale and retail customers may order StrateGene – Strategic Genetic Analysis.

Genetic report
I was very please to get an extensive genetic report after proving my raw data in just five minutes. It was most informative. Review by DeRolf C. (Posted on 1/5/2017)
An overview of what StrateGene is and offers, and what you can expect to learn from it as a customer
The StrateGene report has helped me to zero in on my most important gene SNPs and mutations, and I have a much better understanding of the biochemical pathways in which they are found, and how they impact my overall methylation cycle since ordering this report, which comes in the form of a downloadable PDF file. I am also learning a great deal from being part of the StrateGene Facebook group, as to how my SNPs may affect and interact with my health, and talking with others who may also have similar mutations and health issues and learning what they are doing, and what has worked for them as well. The members of the StrateGene Facebook group can share information about their health and compare their symptoms with one another, while doctors who are specializing in MTHFR and naturopathic and alternative medicine will provide specific feedback to questions with medical information or insights that can further help one to interpret their report, and guide you as to what you can do for your health and how to become more knowledgeable about your genetics. The report is much more than just data or a list of SNPs and mutations. It provides illustrated charts showing how your individual SNPs interact within each of five biochemical pathways of the methylation cycle, and highlighting where each of your genetic mutations will fall within those cycles, as well as defining what each cycle does. These biochemical pathways include the Folate Cycle; the Methionine Cycle; the Transsulferation Pathway; the Biopterin Pathway; and the Histamine Pathway. It also provides information on how other things known as cofactors can influence the interaction of your gene SNPs within those cycles, and what types of substances whether supplemental, food, hormonal, or chemical, can influence your SNPs, by either "speeding them up" or "slowing them down." In addition to the list of main SNPs, there is also a list of bonus SNPs, with an index of resources at the back of the report, so that you can research and learn more about each of your identified SNPs. Participation in the Facebook group is definitely part of the benefit of having a StrateGene report, and the price of this report is very reasonable, given the amount of information it will provide you with and the contact with others who have similar health problems, as well as specialized medical practitioners who can guide you with suggestions. While you will still need to participate yourself in learning about your own report and SNPs, this is definitely a worthwhile tool to put you on a track to better health and insight into your own genetics. It is also advisable to look for a knowledgeable practitioner with whom you can consult in putting together an individualized health plan for yourself and you can do this through Dr. Lynch's website or ask for recommendations, but the report will provide a guide in the form of "a genetic map," that can help you to identify where your problems are, while also putting you on the road to better understanding what your options are, with regard to improving your health and finding the right type of medical help, and learning more about this cutting edge of medical science, as well as individual gene mutations and what types of health issues they are associated with. StrateGene is unlike any other report out there - it is original and will also be improved upon, as more research into SNPs is done, allowing customers to be on top of the latest findings in MTHFR medical research! This is the first time that I have been able to "put it all together" in terms of what I have learned about my own health, and am so glad to have been able to avail myself of this unique tool! Review by Jacqueline A. (Posted on 12/19/2016)
Strategene brings order to the chaos
It’s hard to know where to start with the review of strategene, its unique in many ways, as is its creator Dr Ben Lynch and his team. I will start with first what I think personally is one of the more important points to why you should choose strategene. This gene stuff is complex, it can be so easy to chase SNP’s down rabbit holes and get yourself lost and confused and really hinder progress in what you are trying to achieve, be it by focusing on a single gene for all of your troubles, or even ones that have no real clinical studies done on them and the only information out there is nothing more than pure speculation. Because this area of medicine is getting more and more attention, there are people out there speculating and offering advice on particular genes which really don’t have any clinical evidence or trials behind them, this is where things can get dangerous and can have you running off on tangents chasing something that might not even be real. This is where strategene is very different to a lot of the other gene reports out there, Dr Lynch has gone to a great deal of trouble to make sure what you see in your strategene report actually has real clinical data about its significance or potential function/dysfunction, he has a team of researchers pouring over data to make sure what is included and the effects of the genes listed is backed by actual data rather than pure speculation. Why is this key, well when you think about it the answer should be clear, this stuff is already complex, why add a bunch of hypotheticals about a genes effect into the mix, it’s just going to muddy the waters and make things a lot harder than it already is. The best approach is to take a look at what SNP’s you have that do have actual clinical data behind them and start there, and this is where strategene will serve you best. I am fairly new to Dr Lynch, I did a lot of work on myself before finding him and strategene, but something is becoming clear to me about this man, he is trying his very best to bring order to what is starting to become a bit chaotic out there in this new realm of medicine, this in itself is very honourable and a great service to the industry as a whole. Now as for the report itself, its setup in such a way that it will be easy for practitioners to grasp, and for those individuals that have taken a personal interest in their own genetic systems. Don’t get me wrong, this is still a complex for someone completely new to this stuff and if you don't want to learn genetics, you just take this report to your practitioner who does know it. But if you have an interest, its setup in a way where you can learn a lot and laid out in a way that will aid quicker learning in regards to which SNP’s you have effected and the various other things than can impact on those genes. The report comes with pathway planners which are incredibly useful when you know how to read them. When you have for example mthfr, the pathway planners will show you which vitamins, minerals or elements speed up or slow down the genes expression, this can come in very handy when wanting to say speed up an effected gene, you can see things you may wish to avoid that could be slowing it down. Strategene is also an evolving system, the team is constantly working on new pathway planners, research into effects of certain genes not already in the planners or report, again backed by real data and not speculation. While updates to the strategene system will require you to rerun the report at a cost, it would be worth it to gain the knowledge of new findings the team has made and added to the system. Maybe in the future there will be a lifetime membership option for strategene, that would allow you to rerun your report when things get updated, I for one would pay for this kind of service, if not no big deal and would just rerun my data every couple of years. This review is getting a bit long, so will try and finish up. If you have just got your 23andme done and wanting to learn or get help with understanding which genes you have that could be effecting your health and more, this is the report you want, there is a strong ethical foundation to this report, something that can be lacking in this industry right now, give yourself the best chance with strategene. Review by Dave (Posted on 12/14/2016)
Educating ourselves ON ourselves. The best!!!
Having spent years in the "side-effect" category or "it's complicated" column of healthcare, I began to do my own digging. Two years ago I ordered 23-and-me in hopes of getting to the bottom of my woes from a nutrigenomic standpoint. What I learned VERY QUICKLY is that all of this my newfound knowledge was USELESS (and one could argue, dangerous) without a relevant lens through which to view it. I've ordered ALL of the reports, the ones that are a couple-hundred dollars down to the $5 ones, looking for the nuggets that would help me understand what is going on inside of me. Stratagene is by far my favorite. It's the difference between a dictionary and an encyclopedia. The other reports might have ALL of the words, but they lack context. Stratagene has begun it's efforts with a respectable amount of information on genes that are actionable. I'm not going to sugar coat this - it's still tough stuff, there are no shortcuts. Even culling it down to twenty or so genes, it's still quite a bit of knowledge to digest. But then there's the private facebook community with practitioners and lay people like myself dialoging and learning from each other while we learn together. Not to mention Dr. Ben's weekly live chat... the guy's mission-driven to help us all educate ourselves ON ourselves. If "conventional" medicine relies on the idea that all of our bodies behave somewhat conventionally... without nuance or individualtiy, then Strategene very quickly turns this idea on it's head, by putting the genetic evidence that we are unique individuals at the heart of what needs to be a larger clinical picture. For those of us trying to figure out where to begin on the sea of our own personal genetic information, this report is the best I've experienced. Not because it's the most quantitative report - it's not - rather, it's the most qualitative starting-point. Hats off!!! Review by Adrienne Gray (Posted on 11/20/2016)
Interesting, informative, possibly health-conserving
I've run my data through several tools, and Strategene has produced the clearest and most thorough, understandable, and practical results. I learned that some medications that were being recommended for me are likely to cause problems--which I can now avoid, while investing my energy in testing alternatives. Well worth the investment, many times over. Review by Picky c. (Posted on 11/16/2016)
Invaluable tool
I have waited for this tool for long time as many gene interpretation apps were either very confusing, reporting wrong data or not useful altogether. I have found in the first 10 reports I have used with patients that complements my approach seamlessly. Once I have addressed the basics (life-style, nutrition) I am now able to refine and put all of the patient's info into a contest, enabling me to better refine their environmental choices. Thank you for this tool, long needed by our profession. Review by Alessandro f. (Posted on 11/14/2016)
You get Ben Lynch along with it!
StrateGene is best learning tool I've invested in for my health! It's so much more than a report. Dr. Ben Lynch has created a comprehensive package of tools that go far beyond the actual report. The pathway planners take some time to learn and use, but Ben teaches you how to use them! The absolute best part is that when you purchase StrateGene, you gain access to the StrateGene facebook group where Ben Lynch participates daily. He also makes himself available once a week for an online Q&A session. Ben is so generous with his time and his knowledge, providing information and specific tips that he calls "actionable" information. You can absolutely take action with the information he gives you. When you refer to your own report while you watch his many videos or when reading his posts and comments in the group, you'll begin to understand the mechanisms of how the genetic snps relate to one another and to your conditions, and how to improve your health using these tools. So much healing is possible with StrateGene and Ben Lynch's knowledge and sharing. I feel it has profound potential for worldwide impact. What a great gift and contribution. I'm grateful to Dr. Lynch, and I'm excited for myself, my family and friends, and the millions of others like us. Review by Barbara M. (Posted on 11/11/2016)
The most encompassing source for knowledge
StrataGene is THE place to start. Don't waste time and money chasing isolated bits of information that are difficult to put together in looking holistically at your health. The depth of knowledge that is at your disposal is incredible and the Facebook group is so knowledgeable and supportive. Heartily recommend. Review by Holli (Posted on 11/10/2016)
A must have after getting 23andMe test
This report gives wonderful insight into your genetics in a very easy to understand and precise manner Review by Farhan Qureshi (Posted on 11/10/2016)
Best report for those serious about personal genomics
I've uploaded my 23andMe data to Genetic Genie, MTHFRSupport, NutraHacker, Livewello, Promethease and SelfDecode. By far, I refer to Strategene the most. The report incorporates your SNPs (genetic variations) into diagrams of metabolic pathways. These diagrams are requisite to understanding the complex relationships between genes, metabolites and nutrients. Looking forward to uploading my Genos data when it arrives. Review by Mat (Posted on 11/10/2016)
Key insights
StrataGene is the perfect tool to help understand one's biochemistry or genetic predispositions. Used in concert with Organic Acids or similar tests, the pathway planners help show what to target to alleviate difficult symptoms. Just two weeks ago I was asking a colleague where he thought I could go to get information on where nutrition intersects with biochemistry. This is the place. Review by Diana J. (Posted on 11/10/2016)
I am glad I did this!
Yes, I recommend it with a few caveats & yes I would purchase it again when I did rather than wait for the product to fully develop. I have enjoyed learning so many new things over the last few months. The information provided through StrateGene is quite narrowed & gives the user better focus on well studied genetics & thereby increasing ways to assist in their own health. By far, the best has been the live Q&A's in the private Facebook group. If you have an hour twice a month, do take the time to attend these Q&A's - there is nothing like be able to ask questions to clarify all the data you receive directly with Dr. Lynch. He guides you to other videos he has made to better educate yourself so you can learn more at your pace. Although this product is not a way to get free treatment or advice, you do have a few StrateGene trained medical professionals in the FaceBook group. The caveats: StrateGene is still in development & they are still working on new pathways & tweaking the ones he provides in your report. He is also looking at working with a different genetic testing center that will fill in the blanks much better for anyone facing health problems. This test is expensive (approx $400) on the surface but provides so much more information for the user. As StrateGene is updated, the user will get minor version upgrades for free but will have to pay for major upgrades (the price structure has not been announced). I've had the product for almost 3 months. There has been a minor version update but I have not been notified to update my file. Considering that I had already spent $100 on 23 and Me, & $45 for StrateGene & have attended at least 5 Q&A's - I've gotten my money's worth & I was in on the ground floor getting lots of perks that I'm not sure will continue (i.e. live Q&A's with Dr. Lynch himself, conversing with Strategene-trained medical professionals...) If you already paid for your 23 and Me, definitely buy StrateGene, upload your information, join the FaceBook group, & get ready to learn more than you ever thought! Review by Melissa (Posted on 11/10/2016)
Key Value is the Inhibitor Focus
I find Strategene helpful, not only for colorfully portraying genetic impairments, but especially with StrateGene colorfully showing the inhibitors of enzyme function. These inhibitors are so important to know. Awareness of these inhibitors repeatedly has me come back to assessing the "total picture of health," paying special attention to factors that can inhibit enzyme function. These inhibitors are the gem of StrateGene. These inhibitors are especially important to assess, holding the key to individual health. Review by Dr Z. (Posted on 10/26/2016)
StrateGene took my health to a whole new level of understanding!
I ran the 23andme test years ago, but didn't know what to do with the raw data. Many other tests on the market just list your snps and linked you to research. It was overwhelming! I took this report to my Dr and he was so excited to see exactly where I may be stuck in my health search! I also do my own research so I can take control of my health with diet and lifestyle choices that are best suited to me! An amazing report! Review by Farah D. (Posted on 10/13/2016)
Explains what it all means
If you are willing to take the time to join the facebook group and ask questions and the time and money to watch Dr Lynch's Methylation and Clinical Nutrigenomics – Part 1 & 2 you can really get an incredible education on how to understand and more importantly how to use this remarkable report. This report found a deletion that other reports didn't find. It's an important deletion that now that I know about I can take care of some of my heretofore unexplained health problems. Review by Darren (Posted on 10/13/2016)
StratGene gave me the confidence to change my life!
Learning about genetics, metabolism and methylation cycles is not an easy task. I've been studying up on these topics for the last 18 months in hopes of becoming as healthy as I can be, regain optimal energy, and live a long life. Prior to those 18 months I was struggling, then I got my DNA tested and found out I was gluten intolerant, take away the gluten and I started to feel great but something was still missing. More reading and studying did not give me enough confidence to start supplementation until I received my StratGene report and the overwhelming support that comes along with it. Now I've made a few changes, started pulsing supplements to combat specific SNP mutations and I feel healthier than I have ever been! But the learning continues, every week I visit the Facebook group, re-read my StratGene report, and read a few new medical journal articles. This is the perfect tool for anyone that is willing to put in the extra effort to change their lifestyle and diet. Review by Jason B. (Posted on 10/11/2016)
I've ordered them all. I got the best value here
Dr Lynch and his team have developed something special here. As a DIY-Biohacking-type with limited funds and a ton of curiosity, I have spent the last three months pouring over the results of my 23andme data looking for clues to help address persistent symptoms in my life. After watching and listening to as many of Dr Lynch's free videos and podcasts, After weeks of trying to take pictures of the outstanding pathway charts he has produced, I decided to pay him for this amazing value he has added to my life. I am thrilled at the price and very pleased to see my unique SNPs represented on the charts I have been clandestinely studying. 5 years of Trial and error with my health and diet have given me a lot of anecdotal solutions. Strategene confirmed and refined many of those solutions and opened my eyes to many more. START HERE after the $99 23andme test (which has the same raw data as the $199 23andme test). Dr Lynch's no BS style scrubs out the noise and highlights the areas that count. Yes, this is advanced stuff. Yes, you can benefit right away from the focus it provides. Yes, you are getting the best value here. BTW, I am appreciating Dr Lynch's advice/approach to NOT diagnose myself based on the various SNPs that may or may not be playing an important role in my life. From him, I have learned to see SNPs as clues, NOT life-restricting sentences. Thank you Dr Lynch. Your crusty-yet-humble-yet-confident-yet-curious-yet-balanced approach has become a positive template that has changed my approach to biohacking. I am no longer looking for a silver bullet to slay my symptoms (which oft causes downstream issues). My family and I appreciate you. Review by Lone McCord (Posted on 9/28/2016)
Easy to read and understand!
For the last 3 years i have been researching my own health problems and have used various other website Methylation panels and compared them. This is not only for myself but so friends, family and our community may know and benefit from the differences before they make their purchase. Today i showed 3 different reports to my 10 year old daughter. She liked Strategene the best. It was easiest to read and even she could understand what may block or increase certain pathways. She liked it so much she asked to complete her spit kit that was sitting in our cupboard for the last 10 months waiting just for her. Thank you Dr Lynch for your encouragement and for keeping the candle burning. Please don't let anyone snuff it out! MTHFR is relevant. As a person who suffered from autoimmune problems most of my adult life, I am so glad to learn that MTHFR is very treatable. Most other gene expressions are receding and we can't thank you enough. Strategene is a very helpful tool. Review by Dorothy Falk (Posted on 9/28/2016)
Dr. V
I was really excited to see Dr. Lynch coming out with Strategene. At first I had a little trouble understanding it because I was comparing it to previous reports I had received. Once I looked at the video on how to read the report, I find it very, very helpful. Thank you for the time you put into this project. Review by Vanessa (Posted on 9/6/2016)
I am appreciating this wonderful resource more and more as I re-read, replay videos, go back and work through the chart again and again. I find Dr. Ben's responses so helpful! Others are also helpful, but even the "professionals' responses sometimes do not seem to completely comprehend the questions and the application. There is too much involved in individual history and makeup to expect specific answers and we can only continue to learn and research and even experiment carefully. Knowing that we do have an enormous measure of personal control with due diligence and our own careful attention to our body's responses (and careful record-keeping and journalling!) is a mind-blowing and life-altering concept. THANK YOU Dr. Ben. Review by Linda M. (Posted on 9/3/2016)
