I’ve started writing more and more about science and technology over at the Paradox Project. I thought it would be fun to link to some of that here.
What 23andMe Will Tell You About Your DNA – Personal health reports are back and this time with FDA approval! I look through the new health reports and tell you all about them.
Reading the Internet is a Medical Device: The FDA and 23andMe – The title is a bit provocative, but I’m very proud of this piece on what the FDA was regulating on 23andMe and why that kind of makes sense and why that kind of doesn’t make any sense. Fortunately, there seems to be a great synergy between 23andMe and the FDA now, which was my ultimate positive take-away.
And, of course, my starting point for all this:
The Beginner’s Guide To Genetics Hacking – Starting with the download I got from 23andMe, I walk through what data 23andMe gives you, what it means, how it matters in medical research, and how you (as a data-person with very little genetics background) can get starting working with your own genome.
