23andme have been blogging for a while, but activity has recently picked up. Entitled “The spittoon” (tagline: more than you’ve come to expectorate…nice one), a recent post is bluntly headed “Why science can’t share” and points us to this NYT article by a cancer biostatistician on the difficulties in accessing raw biomedical data.
Update: the NYT article was free when I posted this, but now requires login. Ah, the irony…
The 23andme post is filed, quite appropriately and correctly, under “big questions”. A blog worth keeping an eye on.
