Genome Of A Man Born In 1784 Recreated From The DNA Of His Descendants
The guy who wrote this article seems to be alarmed by this technology, but as I see it there is much more potential for good than for evil.
As DNA sequencing becomes cheaper and more accurate, it will be possible to carry out DNA profiling and collection faster and more economically. Similarly, as computational power increases, chromosome fragments can be analyzed and stitched together more easily. In due course, these kinds of genomic reconstructions will probably become more common. Already, deCODE's research confirms how DNA can establish the connections not just between present-day members of a family, but also with those long dead.

Scientists discover unique protein in platypus milk that could save lives
Cute platypus and interesting science make for a captivating news clip!
CSIRO molecular biologists working with Deakin University researchers have isolated the monotreme lactation protein structure for the first time, identifying a novel three-dimensional fold that the researchers say could lead to the creation of a new type of antibiotics.
