7 The main data file contains roughly 1 million genetic markers that
8 identify things like eye color, resistance to certain diseases,
9 carrier status of other diseases such as glaucoma, certain types of
10 cancers, obesity, how susceptible I am to Multiple Sclerosis and other
11 important health markers that could be used to prevent health issues
12 in the future.

14 I am releasing this data because I believe that it will help others.
15
16 One way that it could help is that it gives Computer Scientists and
17 Bio-Engineers some raw test data to work with that is around 99% accurate.
18 Just having real data to work with is important when writing Open Source
19 software and there is very little good Open Source software for genomics
20 research right now. I hope that by releasing this data, and with the
21 planned release of some open source software to work with this data in
22 real-time, that we will help move this exciting new industry forward.
