comment Questions to ask to a panel of people that will be sequenced
Just a small nitpick, 23andMe does not offer what is generally considered genome sequencing (which at current market prices would be northward of $8k). Their product is SNP genotyping via microarray analysis (at $10s-$100 / chip depending on the company). The array currently repported in use by the company is the Illumina OmniExpress.
