There are three options available for people to get a look into their genomic profile, says a how-to wiki over at Wired. The first two options, going to a genetic counselor or going through a company, are described in brief in favor of a five-step DIY-approach to genome sequencing. All you have to do, according to the wiki, is swab a cheek, buy a couple of kits, PCR machine, and a sequencer and you're off to the races. Matt Mealiffe, at DNA and You, blogs, "I think the world of Wired, but in case it is not clear to the early adopters out there... Wired is probably not where you want to get your medical advice."
