Scientists to map Ozzy Osbourne's DNA

One man has perhaps stood above all others when it comes to testing the body's limits. That is Ozzy Osbourne, former lead singer of Black Sabbath.

So now a genome sequencing company called Knome has decided to find out just what Ozzy Osbourne is really made of. It intends to test his DNA to see what kind of strange genetic makeup it contains that might explain Osbourne's very survival.

According to Sky News, he will be lucky enough to be one of the very few people in the world to have his entire genome analyzed.

The process should take around three months. One of the many areas around which Knome will reportedly focus its fascination is just how one man's body can soak up and survive so much drug use.
