Gene Tree

I read about the Gene Tree in the Sunday Times and thought the idea was incredible. You send in a sample of hair or something and, for a small fee, they extract your DNA. They can then use this info to work out exactly where in the world you’ve come from and who you are related to so, if you’ve always thought you had an all conquering Viking relative, then here’s your proof.

Having looked at the website I am slightly disappointed as I was expecting something quite slick. Unfortunately they’ve tried to do too much too quickly at the expense of the execution. As a result the idea which I latched onto at first is now somewhat diluted.

I’m still going to have a go though so I ‘ll let you know what comes back.
