DailyDirt: Looking At The Human Genome

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The human genome contains an incredible amount of information that we are only starting to parse. Sequencing large amounts of DNA is getting cheaper and faster, so it's only a matter of time before we'll be able to collect a vast amount of genetic information and connect it with practical medical diagnoses and treatments. Here are just a few projects working on decoding our genetic blueprints. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    Seriously, someday we'll actually have the technology to produce a clone army... and bias society against the genetically inferior with actual science.
