What do you think, if your cells/dna are used for research, and that research turns into big money, should you get part of the $?

Matt I don't think so. I think it's akin to winning the lottory. You did not do anything through your mental and physical skills to create the value. That was done by someone else. I do have a problem when the benefits of that research are not provided to people just because they can't afford it.
