Introduction ------------ This git repository contains the genetic information for Manu Sporny extracted using the Illumina OmniExpress Plus Genotyping Beadchip. The main data file contains roughly 1 million genetic markers that identify things like eye color, resistance to certain diseases, carrier status of other diseases such as glaucoma, certain types of cancers, obesity, how susceptible I am to Multiple Sclerosis and other important health markers that could be used to prevent health issues in the future. I am releasing this data because I believe that it will help others. One way that it could help is that it gives Computer Scientists and Bio-Engineers some raw test data to work with that is around 99% accurate. Just having real data to work with is important when writing Open Source software and there is very little good Open Source software for genomics research right now. I hope that by releasing this data, and with the planned release of some open source software to work with this data in real-time, that we will help move this exciting new industry forward.
