The Spittoon: A DNA and Family History Research Blog

The Spittoon: A DNA and Family History Research Blog

The Spittoon is the company blog of 23andMe, a DNA testing company. The blog includes articles by their scientists, researchers, and other employees.

The goal of the site is to help customers understand their DNA, health, traits, and ancestry, and it offers some fascinating information into DNA research science, trends, and discoveries, as well as helpful information for family history researchers exploring their roots through their genetic code.

Recent articles include:

Many of the articles take a lighthearted approach to a complex field. Others help us understand the complex science found in DNA research.

This is also a good example of how a scientific research company can not only put a human face on their mission, but find a way of helping customers and non-customers expand their knowledge and understanding of the science without the sales pitch or corporate tone.

I recommend you add this one to your family history feed or bookmarks to keep up on the latest news and help you better understand your own DNA research.
