Some years back I read "The seven daughters of eve" by Bryan Sykes. A very interesting read. At that time they already offered some service to link your genes with one of the ancestral mothers described in this book. Ever since sending in some material has been on my to consider list. Recently 23andme has been a buzz word on twitter. Apparently you can have saliva send in to to be mapped to existing scientific knowledge. I am very much tempted to get the personalized genetics from my to consider list, to my to do list.
I would like to know if there are experiences good/bad with personalized genetics. How reliable are these personalized services? If so, do you get data back in such a way that you can do personalized bioinformatics with it?
Are there other reliable services overing personalized genetics except the two already mentioned?
