Most Importantly, Anne Has the "Likes Brussels Sprouts" Gene

Fast Company has an interview with 23andMe co-founders, Linda Avey and Anne Wojcicki.

"Part of the thing that really motivated me in getting into this was adverse events," Avey says. "I would love to have cancer patients be able to walk in five years from now and get their tumor genotyped and know they should be taking this kind of drug instead of that one."
