Gattaca / Home Genetic-Testing Services
In the world of Gattaca, your individual human worth is determined solely by your genes, which are thought to determine the sum of your potential achievement in life. Real-life society hasn't gotten that far, but home genetic-testing services such as 23andme.com claim to offer you insights into genetic predispositions to disease, predicted drug reactions, and even more information about your ancestry. Fortunately, they’re not part of your standard job-application process--yet.
