Manu Sporny's genetic information (roughly 1 million SNP markers)

ManuSporny-genome.txt Added my genome into source control. Feb 12, 2011



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.
