What is the Tapestry DNA Sequencing Research Study?

Mayo Clinic researchers are seeking to understand the short-term and long-term impact of genetic testing on people's health care when their DNA results are part of the electronic health record. If you do not want the results of this genetic testing to be part of your electronic health record, you should not take part in this study.

Genetic data from participants will also be used to create a library of genetic information (registry) for future research. Mayo Clinic, Helix or other researchers — including commercial groups — may request to access the data for research or commercial purposes. No names or other identifying information related to the data will be shared with external parties. Review frequently asked questions on data privacy for more information.
