Genomes

Really interesting article about the decoding of the genome. James Watson, who, along with Francis Crick, discovered the structure of DNA, had his own genome decoded and published into a book. The implications of the ability to do this are tremendous, as discussed in the article. It awes me along with weirding me out a bit - our human nature decodes into bits and pieces of proteins and a coded representation of them, it's kinda scary, but way cool. Check out the article as it discusses some of the positives and negatives to such research.
