"Welcome to deCODEus. deCODEus is an experiment. We want to find out what this is all about. deCODEme is a service provided by deCODE of Iceland. They’re a biotech firm that has made a name for itself by cataloging the genetic material of hundreds of thousands of people, and using that information to ‘decode’ the human genome. We want to think about what the appearance of services like these means for how we think about life, health, personhood, and science and technology. We want to place ourselves right in the middle of the ‘personal genomics revolution’ as consumers, citizens, and cultural analysts. Most of all, we want to document and discuss the process of getting a personal genetic profile." Read, comment, and help us to raise the $985 we need to get a profile through 'swarm funding' micro-donations.
