Of course we are. Selfish genes don't care about the species, only
maximizing propagation. I'd say spike's 23andme posts have illustrated how
well those selfish genes are working despite our cultural memes for fidelity
and restraint. :) _______________________________________________
I am thinking of a way to automate the process of figuring out a person's
genetic genealogy from their DNA. The process is extremely laborious the
way I am doing it, shuffling around through traditional genealogies, looking
for common names, etc, when we know the traditional genealogy does not
necessarily match the biological genealogy.
If we were to develop a software toolbox of some sort which can automate
some of this process, it would be worth a fortune.
