Redesigning biology may be man's ultimate artistic and scientific exploit. The first steps are reading and writing genetic data with DNA sequencing and synthetic biology. Already human genome sequencing costs have declined such that individuals worldwide are accessing their own genomic data, and can explore it through open-source science communities such as DIYgenomics.

    • DIYgenomics philosophy March 7, 2011 DIYgenomics.org
      • Goal: preventive medicine
        • Realize preventive medicine by establishing baseline markers of wellness and pre-clinical interventions
      • Generalized hypothesis
        • One or more polymorphisms may result in out-of-bounds baseline levels of phenotypic markers. These levels may be improved through personalized intervention.

    • DIYgenomics study #1: MTHFR
      • Do common mutations in the MTHFR gene prevent vitamin B from working correctly?
      • Test whether 2 variations in the MTHFR gene (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) keep vitamin B9 (folic acid) from being metabolized into its active form (folate)
        • rs1801133/C677T
        • rs1801131/A1298C
      • Without this form of vitamin B, homocysteine may accumulate
        • Risk: nutritional deficiencies and symptoms associated with diabetes complications, including vascular damage and nerve damage
      • 50% or more of the population may have some form of MTHFR polymorphism
