A fairly extensive description of the Hamilton DNA project was posted to
this list a few months ago and is also present at the following web site:
Sample collection from participants is painless. It merely involves rubbing
the inside of the cheek with a brush collector. In this way some of the
cells that are continuously being sloughed off from the inside of your
mouth are collected and used for the analysis.
Further details about how to proceed to have your DNA tested can be
obtained from me off list at .
