Melanie Swan is founder of DIYgenomics, a non-profit research organization founded in March 2010 to realize personalized medicine through crowdsourced health studies and apps. One of the project is 'Social intelligence genomics & empathy-building'.  It examine whether individuals with certain genetic profiles may have a greater natural capacity for social intelligence genes which have been associated with optimism and empathy, extraversion, and altruism.  It has also developed a Personal Virtual Coach mobile app-based intervention for empathy-building.
