Genetic dating Prineville live adult cam
Is the science relating to MHC genes and compatibility advanced enough for it to be used as a part of a system for choosing a partner?
I think, romantically, I’d rather steer away from any sort of system and stick with good old ‘chemistry’!
The Gene Partner news piece talks of ‘isolating the compatibility gene’ obviously conflicting with the website’s more informed scientific outlines.
The site also doesn’t seem to explicitly use the MHC/immunity aspect as a marketing tool, although it is the key part to the science section.
If MHC compatibility is AOK, but the chance of a different genetic disorder are high- what moral obligation do companies dealing with genetic information have to inform of other findings? If so how is the testing of individual genes regulated and how are the results stored? After reading The Economist’s article from 2008 A new kind of dating agency relies on matching people by their body odour, I was curious to see that (temporarily unavailable) was a quick search didn’t shed any light as to the reasons for its absence, however it did lead me to a bundle of dating sites, including chemistry.com, with a detailed ‘personality test’ and a much more traditional take on the ‘chemistry’ of attraction.
Many sites appear to use the chemical/scientific theme as a marketing tool, not so many it would seem actually offer gene compatibility testing.
The premise is that people with a greater diversity of HLA genes are more likely to be attracted to each other.
Complex but simple, such a beautiful structure, but what influence does it hold in tainting the way the text is read?
uk (an offshoot of The Dating Group) even goes as far as to display a helix and ‘genetic’ in the title, yet seems to be purely personality based.
A somewhat famous study back in the 1990s involved women sniffing sweaty T-shirts that had been worn by men for three days straight.
An analysis found that the female participants were attracted to the stench of the men whose HLA genes were most different from their own. The San Diego startup, founded that same year, matches DNA data with a person’s personality data from the venerable Myers–Briggs test that locates 16 personality traits on a spectrum, such as extrovert versus introvert.
