Google going biotech? A key-phrase to interpret this move could be this one:
"It was set up by Anne Wojcicki, who married Google co-founder Sergey Brin earlier this month."

|According to a report in the Financial Times, chief executive Eric Schmidt said Google believes personal information will be one of the firm's key avenues of future expansion. |
|"Achieving this significant funding milestone enables us to move forward with our core mission of connecting people with their genetic information," said 23andMe fellow co-founder Linda Avey. |
I'm a confessed Google sceptic but surely these two quotes were reported out of context. The implications of Google cross-referencing our personal and genetic information...

this is STUPID and definitely looks bad--even if it isn't. He has enough cash to fund his girlfriend's (or wife's) start up without having google involved.

This is a guy (husband) funding his wife's business in hope she has some success.....been there, done that myself!
$4 million is chicken feed.....the mistake he made was to put it through the Google books instead of writing a personal check! Big mistake!

It might look bad if Google bought the company, but I don't see a problem with them investing a smallish amount in it.
