DNA Sequencing [Apr. 17th, 2008|02:56 pm]

A tweet from earlier today:
DNA fedexed to Iceland. Genetic predispositions forthcoming. Friend me on decodeme to share genes! :P
(Seriously, they're a social networking site?!)

I can't wait to actually add my foaf:dnaChecksum field to my FOAF. I might need to flesh out that spec a bit more, though, clarifying how to specify the digest function and the input fileformat.

What made you choose decodeme over 23 And Me?

Read a lot of reviews and they all said "they're both good, yay competition, can't go wrong with either."

So it was mostly arbitrary.

I liked decodeme's website a bit more. *shrug*

...share genes...

Yeah; hetero sex is so old school. Much easier to mix 'n match DNA this way, instead! :-)
