Social networking for genes

"DNA testing in family history is reaching critical mass" now that a new
website uses DNA testing to help family members trace their ancestry.

Ancestry.com, the largest family history website on the web, is partnering with Sorenson Genomics, a privately held DNA research team, to offer DNA results.

You swab a cheek, send in $200 and they will analyze the DNA and put the results into their massive databases,

Some may consider this as social networking for genes

HT to book of joe's Who's Your Daddy?, a post that caused me to wonder what havoc that might bring to some families.
