    I believe that is part of Dr. Kogelnik's research agenda at OMI -- not just genetics but a bank of other diagnostic possibilities like toxin assays?

    A lot of us have been sharing our 23andMe results in the SNP subforum. There's a thread comparing rare allele data at http://forums.phoenixrising.me/index.php?threads/rare-allele-data.23978/ and my fiance and I have created a much easier and faster rare allele analysis program which is discussed at http://forums.phoenixrising.me/index.php?threads/download-for-rare-snp-analysis.24983

    I've tried to encourage people to share results before, but with no luck. It is a shame, I think there could be game-changing discoveries to be made by just analysing large enough data sets. It's pretty much the only thing we could do to help ourselves.

    May I ask which results you were referring to? Whole genome sequencing is still pretty expensive (3k to 5k?).

    Anything and everything, including just personal information like location, disease history etc.
    I would devote time to creating a database if I could think of a way to encourage people to use it...
