(Now to persuade the lab people here to mutate my DNA before sending it off to make it look like I have a slightly bigger penis...)

So people sequence hundreds of individuals and get information about the population and the genetic diversity of it.


I'm learning about all this now.

Are you just sequencing or are you in the manufacturing side as well?

Bought a new laptop. The last time I got a new computer was in 2006. THIS IS AWESOME.

It is a service company. So we take in DNA, make the sequencing libraries, send it for sequencing, do the bioinformatics, return data.

So, "just" sequencing.

And Michael, don't you know that not only can we tell from the DNA what the size of your penis is, but also that you are likely or not to lie about it? And if you think that you can just mutate your DNA to hide that, we will know that you are likely to lie about being likely to lie about the size of your penis. So, please send DNA and a photo of your penis as soon as possible.

The bread I've been making lately is phenomenal, never fails, and the dog wants to steal it more than any other food item - even his own food, which he really loves, and the cat food, which he loves even more.

I was also able to get ridiculously huge portabella mushrooms for cheap, so homemade buns and grilled portabellas made the best vegetarian burgers ever. Omg. I want to eat it again.

So... you can't insert, say, the gene for bioluminescence into human DNA?

Can you point me in the direction of someone who can?

Sounds like you require the services of the chou-kawaii Virus-chan!


and a few hundred throw-away human embryos
and some volunteer uteri

and probably a lawyer




Anyways, my crack team of specialists is on the job!

Will that be cash or credit?

I'm usually a very un-romantic person, but a good fluffy romance fiction with a happy end always puts me in a bubbly mood. x3
