Why Use Heterogeneous?

How Genetic Data Sharing Is Now

Your data is accumulated by companies who sell it to third parties without your knowledge.

How Genetic Data Sharing Should Be

You should have control of your own data and contribute to the research you want to be part of.

Act Now

We put you in the drivers seat, and let you decide how your data is used.

What We Believe In


Be part of a global effort to understand human health and longevity but dictate the terms. We operate a dynamic consent model – you have the final say on how your data is used.


You should not have to choose between progress and security. We encrypt your data and ask your permission before it is shared. We make it a point to be transparent about what we do and why we do it.


You can update data in real time, request specific research projects and be part of a community in which your opinion matters.


We don’t take without giving back – you’ll receive personalised reports about the research that you participate in.
