23andme-new-logo.pngPersonal genomics is finally here.

23andMe, the Google-backed startup promises to let you search and share your personal genetic information, and now lets you do it a cost of $999 per individual.

Unlike other recent “launches,” 23andMe’s service is available right now. Those who sign up will get a genome scan, stored on the Web in what 23andMe says will be an extremely secure way. They’ll then explore it for disease risk, genealogy or personal ancestry. Check out the details, and potential pitfalls, over at VentureBeat Life Sciences (here for more).
