Google’s New Moonshot Project: the Human Body

Google has announced a new ‘baseline’ study of the human body. Here’s the story from the WSJ.

“Google has embarked on what may be its most ambitious and difficult science project ever: a quest inside the human body.

Called Baseline Study, the project will collect anonymous genetic and molecular information from 175 people—and later thousands more—to create what the company hopes will be the fullest picture of what a healthy human being should be.”
