DNA Land has opened! If you are curious what DNA Land is, well here is the concise description offered by the website:
DNA Land is a place where you can learn more about your genome while enabling scientists to make new genetic discoveries for the benefit of humanity. Our goal is to help members to interpret their data and to enable their contribution to research.
At the time I captured the above screenshot, the site boasted '2,483 genomes and counting'. At the time I started writing this piece it had already risen to '2,501' genomes. Erika Check Hayden gives a good overview of DNA Land in a Nature news item: Scientists hope to attract millions to 'DNA.LAND'.
So DNA Land is a place to learn more about your genome, which aims to attract millions of visitors, and where you can also earn badges. Hmm, makes me wonder whether I should wait for DNA World to open…especially if the lines are long.
