Psigenes Genetic Data Sharing

Purpose of the Study:

You have been invited to be in this research study because you are interested in the genetics of psychic ability or extended human capacities. If you participate in all research activities, you will complete this online survey and share genetic data you have received from a direct-to-consumer genetic service like 23andMe or Ancestry.com with the Institute of Noetic Sciences.  

The purpose of this study is to learn more about whether extended human capacities have a genetic characteristic. Genes are the units of DNA--the chemical structure carrying your genetic information--that determine many human characteristics such as the color of your eyes, your height, and whether you are male or female. The data you provide will be used to determine if psychic abilities are associated with specific genes or genetic networks.
