And 23andMe has dropped to $399!


It used to be $1000, not sure how long they have had their service
available, but I think that's a price drop of 60% in one year.

"23andMe was founded in April 2006 by Linda Avey and Anne Wojcicki"

I don't think they've been sequensing since 2006, either way, it's progress!
