Personal Genome Results from 23andMe and deCODEme

Personal Genome Results from 23andMe and deCODEme

Personal genome results from the first wave of customers are rolling in.

Mark Fletcher of of Wingedpig has been discussing his results from 23andMe (search results from his blog).

Myles Axton of Nature Genetics has been sharing his deCODEme results at Free Association.

And Megan Smolenyak made this 17 minute screencast discussing her husband’s deCODEme results.

I’m impressed with how forthcoming people are about their genetic data. Perhaps privacy isn’t really a big deal in this age of reality television, blogs, and national DNA databases. For more on disclosing genetic information, Jason at The Personal Genome has been thinking a lot about the risks of obtaining and sharing personal genome sequences.

Have you made your genetic information publicly available? Let us know in the comments!
