This webinar :
Professor Shephard and Phillips have a long interest in TMAU and FMO3 enzyme. They are based in London universities and their work and research is based around the 2 groups of enzymes ; the cytochrome P450 enzymes and the FMO enzymes. Since FMO3 is one of the FMO group of enzymes, they have a natural interest in TMAU and have written research papers on FMO3 and TMAU . For this webinar they will provide a presentation on TMAU and FMO3 and will afterwards take questions from the audience.

FMO3 DNA testing
Update Aug 17 :
Genos is back with it's EXOME test

Note :
Exome/Genome testing may be better option than single gene testing.

See this post : link

Note : Genos Exome Testing.

Exome testing is almost the same price now as single gene testing. Also Genos is consumer friendly, which standard DNA labs are not.

So the blog offer to test solely for FMO3 is almost obsolete, and so no longer offered.

Does Genos fully sequence FMO3 gene ?

At the moment it is not clear, but hoped this will become clear over the next few months

Note : possible 'wild west' way of testing FMO3
Use an ancestry dna site and rummage through the raw data
