Knome, the company known for gene sequencing, is offering to personally read your DNA if you win their auction on eBay. The opening bid is $68K which is much lower than the $350K that they were charging just last year to determine the sequence of virtually all 6 billion chemical units of DNA in a person’s 46 chromosomes. I guess you can file this publicity stunt under the section of "who gives a crap" because no one even knows what to do with the information. My favorite part of the article explained how the company is throwing in a bonus to help attract bidders — a private dinner with George Church, a prominent Harvard scientist who co-founded Knome. I want to be first to go on record and say that I would rather have dinner with the gnome from the Travelocity commercials.
