Gene Exploration has never been more fun then now. A lot of blogs have been buzzing about a new startup called 23andMe, introducing the first personal genome service.
For $1000 you can send your saliva and 23andMe will discover how your “genes may affect your chances of developing various diseases", trace the history of them, "compare your genome to those of populations around the globe" and to your friends and even find out which one of your family members is responsible for all the unique skills that you have.
Of course all of that is possible if you have a few thousand dollars to spare and the courage to face the unknown. One of the reasons why 23andMe is creating such a buzz is because one of the founders Anne Wojcickialso happened to be the wife of Sergey Brin, Google’s President.
