23andme , Google, Sergey Brin

23andme is a California based startup which specializes in DNA testing and is named after the 23 pairs of chromosomes in each human cell. The startup was in the news a few years ago because the CEO of the startup Anne Wojicki was married to the google founder Sergey Brin from 2007 to 2015, and separated after sergey brin had an extra marital affair with a google employee Amanda Rosenberg.
Allegedly according to media reports, DNA testing on Sergey Brin showed that he had a high possibility of getting a fatal disease, which made him upset and lead to the affair , which was widely discussed in the online media.
23andme provides DNA testing at an affordable rate, charging only $99-$199 for basic testing. However there is a possibility that it will misuse the DNA data collected just like google.
