Genome Browser

We live in amazing times. Sure we haven't been to the moon in over thirty years, but at least you can browse the entire human genome on the internet. All 3,272,187,692 base pairs.

Top Men at Wohba aren't sure what to do with all this genetic information, but it's nice to know it's there, should we feel the need to... oh... wait... we almost forgot... 20% of human genes have been patented in the United States, primarily by private firms and universities.

Doh (ba).
