Recent advances in metagenomic technology and computational prediction may inadvertently weaken an individual's reasonable expectation of privacy. Through cross-kingdom genetic and metagenomic forensics, we can already predict at least a dozen human phenotypes with varying degrees of accuracy. There is also growing potential to detect a "molecular echo" of an individual's microbiome from cells deposited on public surfaces. At present, host genetic data from somatic or germ cells provide moredoi:10.1186/s40168-021-01076-z pmid:34016161 fatcat:y4c5dw4dure6xjysdcmq6zr2se
