Homes stand in a village on the island of Vagar in the western Faroe Islands, under the sovereignty of Denmark, on Friday, Dec. 7, 2012. A proposed plan would decipher the complete DNA sequence of the 50,000 citizens of this tiny, windswept land halfway between Scotland and Iceland, from its fishermen to the prime minister, using the data for medical treatment and research. Scientists already see the Faroes becoming a model for the use of human genomes. Photographer: John Lauerman/Bloomberg via Getty Images
