The Science Behind Sperm Donor and Recipient Matchmaking
The Gene Pool Match App harnesses the power of genomics and AI to refine the matchmaking process for sperm donors, recipients, and potential co-parents.
We use the proprietary DRom 1.0 algorithm from DNA Romance LTD, which evaluates 100 Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) markers located in genes known to play a role in immune system compatibility and human attraction and reproduction. Research shows that individuals with diverse DNA markers in the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) region have improved chances for successful conception and healthy offspring. This matchmaking approach matches parents with different alleles for immune system performance, resulting in more genetically diverse offspring compared to the average, thus reducing the potential for health complications..
How Different Personality Types Interact in Relationships
personality compatibility rating
is based on the Jung/Myers-Briggs 16 personality types. This psychometric test has a rich history of development dating back 100 years
to Swiss psychiatrist Dr. Carl Jung and his book "Psychologische Typen", which translates to Psychological Types in English.
This personality test was later refined by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother Katherine Briggs.
The official version of the 16 personality types test is known as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® and is used predominantly in the field of organizational psychology.
DNA Romance's personality compatibility algorithm can be used to assess personality compatibility between potential co-parents, or sperm donors and recipients. It works by assigning
maximum compatibility scores for similar personality types and less compatibility with personality types that clash. This way, potential recipients can consider personality traits along with physical and genetic characteristics when choosing a sperm donor.
* found that sperm viability was associated with partners' HLA dissimilarity, indicating
that cervical mucus may selectively facilitate later gamete fusion between
immunogenetically compatible partners .
MHC Based Attraction (aka Chemistry) and Relationship Choice
DNA Romance employs the DRom 1.0 algorithm, which analyzes Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs).
These SNPs have been confirmed to play a significant role in genetic compatibility, which is crucial for successful sperm donations and healthier offspring.
Our understanding of these SNPs and their impact comes from numerous independent studies that have studies the MHC complex and have confirmed it's role in reproductive health.
We have considered these comprehensive research studies while developing DRom 1.0, aiming to provide a scientifically-sound and reliable tool for potential sperm donors and recipients..
Our personality compatibility rating is based on the Myers-Briggs 16 personality types.
This test has a long history with the development of the first 3 components dating back almost 100 years to Dr. Carl Jung
and today the 4 letters and 16 personality type groups are widely known to the majority of people.
DNA Romance's personality compatibility algorithm, called PC1, puts maximum weight on similar personality types and less weight towards personality types that tend to clash.
