There's a blog entry in the above URL about http://www.knome.com, which does
full genome sequencing for a limited clientele. I had previously written to
them to inquire about the cost. They were rather coy, saying only that their
services were intended for "high net worth" individuals. The blog gives a price
of $349,000.

The next URL discusses some of the commercial prospects of 23andMe. These are
mentioned in the consent form at 23andMe.
