What’s your experience with personal genomics?

January 29, 2009

Now that there are multiple companies selling genome scans, and urging their use as a guide in making decisions about health, the sociologists are following close behind. Marcie Lambrix, at Case Western University, contacted me recently to seek research help in putting together a report on consumer attitudes and experiences with personal genomics. The research is for an academic study whose results will be publicly available. It is not marketing research. I offered to post Marcie’s contact information on QS – if you have used 23andMe, Navigenics, deCODEME, or Knome, she would like to hear from you.

(And if you are a user of Knome, please let me know, too. I would love to hear a description of how you are using this information at the next QS Show&Tell.)

(From MIT’s Technology Review: “A customer who pays $350,000 for Knome’s
service receives a silver box containing an eight-gigabyte USB drive
housing his or her genome sequence…”)
