Ozzy Osbourne's Genome

Scientists are to map Ozzy Osbourne's genetic code in a bid to find out how he is still alive after decades of drug and alcohol abuse.

The former Black Sabbath frontman is only one of a few people in the world to have his full genome analysed.

Now he may get some answers from US company Knome, which will use a blood sample to map his genome.

It is hoped the results from the 27,000 test, which takes three months, will provide information on how drugs are absorbed in the body

27K ?, given the street value of Ozzie's blood he should get a refund.  :)

What a hilarious story; I'd missed that one. I wonder if they'll uncover any bat DNA sequences when they process the samples...
