Looks like they were finally able to work out something with the FDA, and are back up and running. On the one hand, I'm very excited about the return of personalized genetic testing, but on the other hand I'm disappointed that their price doubled to $199. I was going to get kits for my 4-member family for Christmas, but that won't be feasible now.

Another interesting release from 23andme that came out at the same time is their [transparency report](https://www.23andme.com/transparency-report/), which shows how many requests from law enforcement they have gotten for customer DNA access, and what percentage they have gone through with.
