17 Dec 2007 SNPedia: A Wiki for Personal Genomics
Bio-IT World Magazine “Inside the Box” Column – December 2007
A few years ago, having gained familiarity with various microarray platforms, I figured out how to run my own DNA and extract the details. By cataloguing my single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), I knew 500,000 facts about myself, but had no idea about their implications. As my resources were more technical than financial, starting a wiki made more sense than starting a genetic testing company.
