Personal Genome Special $999

The holiday season is here. Are you trying to think of what to get that special someone? Well in the spirit of giving, I shall give a suggestion. For that special scientist in your life, or maybe just science nerd, you can give the gift of knowledge. Knowledge of his or her personal genome, that is.

A company now offers to sequence DNA commercially. Just collect some saliva and mail ship it to them. Oh, and don’t forget your $999 check.

Yup, for less than a grand, a DNA sequence can be bought!

Brave new world.

Oh, I almost forgot. You’ll want the link to the company’s website, right?
