Date:2/28/2013

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California and MOSCOW, February 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Sixty years after the discovery of DNA, a new social network for personal health and genetics is launched via PrimerLife.com.

Sixty years ago, a team of scientists led by James Watson and Francis Crick announced a discovery that led to a change in the way people viewed their bodies and revolutionized approaches in health maintenance and treatment. It was in February 28, 1953 when the two biologists discovered the molecular structure of deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA, which led to a better understanding of genetics and its relationship with diseases.

Considered to be the first of its kind in the world, PrimerLife.com will showcase how genetics and social networking technology can work hand-in-hand to create positive impacts for human health and is seen as the future of personalized healthcare.
