Looks like Dr. Daniel MacArthur & company went and did it, go get their genotypes, or browse them online. This should be interesting. Since Dr. MacArthur's wife has agreed to be a participant in some ways Tobias MacArthur is also part of the project by implication. To some extent the same is true of the current or future children of all the participants. And you can work your way up and across the family trees as well. I'm 99.9% sure that this won't really matter. I believe that by the time Tobias MacArthur is self-aware people won't be so paranoid about genetic privacy. On the other hand I too have a raw 23andMe data file, and I haven't posted it online, and I won't just quite yet. This is a case where I'll let others get on the elevator first to test it out.
