A private firm funded by Google Inc launched its Web-based DNA test in Europe on Tuesday, hoping to build on a successful start in the United States, where the $999 service went on sale in November.
Linda Avey and Anne Wojcicki, co-founders of 23andMe, will showcase their service at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, which starts on January 23.
Subscribers to 23andMe mail a saliva sample and, four to six weeks later, get the results online, allowing them to learn about inherited traits, their ancestry and -- probably with the help of a professional -- some of their personal disease risks.
"We are receiving overwhelming interest in our services outside the U.S. and are pleased to now offer them in Canada and Europe. We hope to continue to expand our global footprint to additional locations in the future."

Hm...A giant catalogue of DNA...What kind of thing could this be used for?
Great good, and great evil. Which side do you think humans so far have been leaning?
