I was pretty excited when 23andMe first appeared on the scene, offering genomic scanning to the masses. In the years since, beyond distributing several 23andMe kits as gifts and introducing people to Promethease, nothing much happened. The whole FDA debacle didn't help. But after we decided that we wanted to have children, my interest surged again, and right about the same time, Genos Research began (briefly) to offer "whole exome scanning", where the exome is the part of the genome that codes for proteins, and constitutes about 50M basepairs, compared to most other services' microarray-based scanning that covers <1M.

Naturally, I signed us up.
