After a few more than 40 days, we are delighted to close the crowdfunding genome project fundraing collection. We have been very lucky to raise $3,526.59 USD. Yes, this is not the $20,000 that we needed to carry out the whole genome sequencing for 5 members of my family, but this money will be enough to do the exome sequencing of my parents and sister. Certainly this is a step ahead in our adventure to understand ourselves better.
For those who would like to know where the funds come from, they all come from family and friends.
We are planning to create a website where all of the data, publications and stories related to our genome findings will be collected. This website will be made public sometime in the fall of 2012.
