I just wrote in another thread about how electrum addresses are derived from my seed. Just wondering whether that is possible literally? I mean literally derived from my DNA? Maybe that is how future bitcoin wallets will work.

This would be completely possible. Somehow obtain your raw DNA sequence (TAGATTGAT...) and use it as a seed for a deterministic wallet. BIP 0032 could be a possible method.

That wouldn't be too smart though; if I got a hair of your body I could access all your coins.

Hair, skin cells CSI style or even saliva from a utensil I used would be enough to steal from me. So yeah not a good idea.

It's still be cool though. How about DNA + passphrase?

It could be the "something you are" part of a multifactor authentication system:

But as mentioned before we practically shed our DNA all over the place so it is useless to use it. Fingerprints or retinal scans are a better idea.
