QuickWire: German Students Start DNA Dating Site

Students at the Technical University of Munich are turning to DNA to improve people’s dating lives.

A new dating site, Gmatch.org, uses DNA taken from the cheek swabs of users to suggest other users with whom they might have good chemistry, according to the site’s founder, Sarah A. Port. The service costs approximately $200 per use, according to The Telegraph.

The student-run site isn’t the first DNA-based dating service. Boston-based ScientificMatch.com began offering similar services in 2007 for about $2,000 per year, according to CNET News.
