Citizen scientists, you can now DIY your own DNA analysis with Bento Lab

Bento LabWant to know if you have the “athlete gene” or if you’re actually related to the weirdos who claim you as a family member? Get your collection tubes ready, citizen scientists, Bento Lab’s DIY DNA analysis kit is here and ready for the in-home lab.
Normally you’d order a kit somewhere like 23andMe, spit in a tube and mail it off for results in six to eight weeks. However, the London-based Bento Lab claims to be the first DIY DNA lab you can use to test anywhere. It’s small enough to fit in a backpack and can analyze DNA from saliva, hair, animal tissue and even beer or wine.
