23andWe


Wondering how 23andMe plans on making money off of selling SNP chip results, when so little is known about most SNPs? Well, today they unveiled part of their master plan_ 23andWe. After getting your results, you can go fill out fun little surveys, all the while helping 23andMe build a massive database of genotype/phenotype information that they can mine for new genetically-influenced traits. Clever.

Getting genotyped isn't worth it yet, from a medical standpoint, but if I had 1000 dollars that I didn't know what to do with, I'd sure do it.
