MacArthur has a screenshot on his page showing just how it works with his information. "The browser could enhance web pages that mention SNPs and show you relevant information without you actually having to break your reading flow and go look up genotype information," says Andy Evans, the developer of the SNPTips tool, at the company's blog. He that the tool is currently in beta-testing and that he plans to develop it other browsers and for data from other genetic testing companies.
