Feature - GED Match, Public DNA Database
Carl De Keyzer
Curtis Rogers is a retired octogenarian who runs GED match, the largest public DNA database in the United States. His service is a mixture of high-tech DNA analysis, high speed computer technology, and old fashioned family genealogy pioneered by some quirky collaborators who got into it as a hobby. In just six months, it opened up a new frontier in criminology and also raised questions about privacy and the ethics of using DNA.
