Want SNPs?

John's, #105, mtDNA results came back yesterday and you can see them posted here.    John is mitosearch 56AQS and if you click on his mitosearch ID you can search for matching or similar sequences.    Also, if you click on his haplogroup you will see his actual mutations and insertions.

A 'Heads Up' for you DNA junkies:    The Coriell Institute for Medical Research, a not-for-profit, basic biomedical research institution, located in Camden, New Jersey is seeking to enroll 10,000 participants for their "Personalized Medicine Project."    This project uses the Affymetrix 6.0 GeneChip which maps 1.8 million genetic markers, including more than 906,600 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and more than 946,000 probes for the detection of copy number variation.    They have raised funding to cover the $1000 test so there is no cost to the participant.    Take a look and see what you think.    This may be an opportunity.
