2/27 Potluck

THIS article by David Craig shows that an individual can be identified in a large population's SNP data.  This has important implications because, before this article, conglomerated SNP data was being made openly available online.  Using a program and an individual's SNP profile, you can tell if that individual is present in a larger sample. This has important implications for privacy.
