Hey Explorer,

This week’s update includes two new reports based on a recent study. The first report examines the genetics of age at first sexual intercourse and the second study look at age at which an individual first becomes a parent. Both studies also implicated genes that you can examine in detail with the exploration tools that are available with our Deep and Ultra Deep Whole Genome Sequencing!

Age at first sex: Sexual activity is a basic and natural part of our development as humans. By 18 years of age, roughly 65% of individuals have had sexual intercourse, and that number rises to nearly 93% by the age of 25. The age that an individual begins having sexual intercourse can have implications on their reproductive health, development, mental health, and various behaviors. While many factors influence an individual’s age at the time of first sexual intercourse, genes also play a role in when we first have sex.  [Published on July 1st, 2021Got your results already?

Age at first birth: Historically, the age at which people become parents for the first time has been young, often in their 20s or earlier. With societal, cultural, and medical changes, people today often reach the age of 30 before having their first child. While many of the environmental and cultural factors influence the age at which person has their first child, genetics also plays a role. This study looked at the genetics of over 540,000 individuals of European ancestry and identified 89 variants associated with the age at which an individual has their first offspring. [Published on July 1st, 2021] Got your results already?

One of the genes implicated in age at first sexual intercourse was ESR1. It encodes a protein called Estrogen Receptor 1. It plays a role in the development of both male and female reproductive organs. Mutations of the ESR1 gene can cause the estrogen insensitivity syndrome which is characterized by the absence of the development of secondary sexual characteristics during puberty. Mutations of ESR1 have also been associated with breast cancer risk.

You can use our genome browser and gene analysis tools to examine the ESR1 gene and any other of the ~20,000 genes in your genome! Simply log in, open the gene analysis tool and search for the three gene names.
