http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/23andme.com says it's down, but obviously can't say why. There doesn't seem to be any information on their Twitter or on the related facebook pages/groups I checked, maybe it's just server problems or something?

I have a question. Assuming they were hacked (I don't think that's the case here), would people's entire genome be in the database? And what are the implications of that?

Hard to say, but like with anything else, our DNA profiles might be vulnerable to a potential hack.
