Another one from Twitter is a direct-to-consumer genetic test that couldn’t detect that the DNA submitted was from a dog.
“Orig3n DNA, which offers a “Superhero” test for strength, intelligence, and speed, failed to note that Bailey was not human.
Instead, after we submitted the $29 test, the company sent a 7 page report, saying that her muscle force would probably be great for quick movements like boxing and basketball, and that she has the cardiac output for long endurance bike rides or runs.
They did advise she might want to work with a personal trainer.”
I know exactly what dog sent this test in.
