Google Invests In Sergey’s Wife’s Company

Guess Google likes to keep the money in the family. Sergey Brin’s new wife, Anne Wojcicki, cofounded the bitech start-up that just received $3.9 million in funding from the search giant, according to EcommerceTimes.

“Formerly a biotech investor herself, Wojcicki cofounded 23andMe last year with biopharmaceutical industry veteran Linda Avey. The startup, located near Google’s Mountain View, Calif., headquarters, is trying to “allow individuals to gain deeper insights into their ancestry, genealogy and inherited traits,” Wojcicki said, according to ECommerceTimes.

23andMe plans to officially launch by the end of the year. The company name refers to the 23 pairs of chromosomes in humans.
