Genetic testing

Genetic testing, also known as DNA testing, allows the determination of bloodlines and the genetic diagnosis of vulnerabilities to inherited diseases. In agriculture, a form of genetic testing known as progeny testing can be used to evaluate the quality of breeding stock. In population ecology, genetic testing can be used to track genetic strengths and vulnerabilities of species populations.

Facebook App to Test Genes

The new project, Genes for Good, is planning on asking 20,000 facebook users to send a vial of spit to their facilities. They will periodically connect with their clients through polling on a facebook app. By testing the DNA, scientists hope to discover links between genetic variations and diseases.

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.
