I Am (mostly) Human

My DNA has now been sequenced and it turns out that I am more human than I had expected. Although I am more Neanderthal than most people (2.9% of my DNA is Neanderthal) all the rest appears to be Homo Sapiens. Not what I expected at all (well, except for the homo part, of course).

Try sequencing your own DNA. The test is $99 (plus a couple dollars for shipping) and took just under two months. I learned what my biggest hereditary health risks are and lots of other interesting stuff as well. Check it out at:
