23andMe.com --- here to scare the shit out of you

23andMe's mission is to be the world's trusted source of personal genetic information.


Corporate Facts
23andMe, Inc. is a privately-held company dedicated to helping individuals understand their own genetic information using recent advances in DNA analysis technologies and web-based interactive tools. 23andMe enables individuals to gain deeper insights into personal ancestry, genealogy and inherited traits. 23andMe was founded in April 2006 by Linda Avey and Anne Wojcicki.

The Meaning Behind the Name
The name 23andMe refers to the 23 pairs of chromosomes that make up each individual’s genome. 23andMe connects individuals to their unique, paired set of 23 chromosomes.







Your 23andMe scan includes genetic analysis on all of the following diseases, traits, and conditions. This list grows every month as new research is published.

Clinical Reports (23)
Clinical Reports give you information about conditions and traits for which there are genetic associations supported by multiple, large, peer-reviewed studies. Those associations must also have a substantial influence on a person's chances of developing the disease or having the trait. Because these associations are widely regarded as reliable, we use them to develop quantitative estimates and definitive explanations of what they mean for you.
Age-related Macular Degeneration
Alcohol Flush Reaction
Bitter Taste Perception
Celiac Disease
Crohn's Disease
Cystic Fibrosis (Delta F508 mutation)

Research Reports (72)
Research Reports give you information from research that has not yet gained enough scientific consensus to be included in our Clinical Reports. This research is generally based on high-quality but limited scientific evidence. Because these results have not yet been demonstrated through large, replicated studies, we do not perform complete quantitative analyses of their effects. We do, however, explain how they may–if confirmed–affect your odds of having or developing a trait, condition or disease.
Research Reports also includes scientifically accepted, established research that does not have a dramatic influence on a person's risk for a disease.

No doubt, Google will own @23andme 30k genomes soon enough http://gawker.com/5396419/did-mrs-googles-company-curl-into-the-googleplex-to-die

OK,
Seriously think about it.
Navigenics hires and Insurance Guy as their CEO, Jack Lord of “Humana”

23andMe lays off a bundle of people, including Linda Avey.

DeCode bombs, deCodeme is dead

TruGenetics has no funders/takers

Daniel Vorhaus JD has a thought experiment and evaluation of the legal precedent. Turns out, despite a good Terms of Service, the company that “acquires”(Google) the bankrupt company (23andMe) can obtain the genomes, despite what the Terms of Service of 23andME say.
