New poll: would you make your genome public?
Would you have your genome sequenced for free? Conditions: you must license it for all use; a liberal CC-no attribution-like license which allows for commercial use as well. Also, your genome will be made public with many personal data such as age, height, sex, weight, ethnicity, personal status (we want to find the “money making gene” and the “fecundity gene”) medical history, some family history but not name or exact geographic location. Note that these metadata may make you traceable, although not easily. To fully appreciate the genotype-phenotype connection, your doctor will upload your medical records with each visit & checkup. Hey, once you contract that late-onset Cheetos addiction at the age of 65, we want to know about it. Hmmm, not so free after all, maybe. Still you may want to do it. Tick in your answer in the blue box in the right sidebar. HT to Mickey for the idea.
