My Valentine’s Day lecture was nothing about romance

I’m still plugging away at my genetics course, and will be until May — so get used to me plopping in these long academic tutorials 3 times a week. You can ignore them, my students can’t.

I’m trusting that the students now have solid foundation in basic Mendelian genetics, so now it’s time to start cutting the mooring ropes so we can drift off into more complex and difficult waters.

    “We can use punnett squares
    To show possible crossing pairs
    Like the ears, the chin, the hair, taste PTC
    It shows every combination of our genes
    The reason we look like you and me”

    Maybe you could put some fun GM organism inside chocolate and give it to your students, just to see their faces when you tell them about it.

    Wow! I always knew Jesus was an evil git, but now to find out he is a lawyer at heart, that takes the cake.

    When I was very young,I misheard that babies who died without being baptised were doing Limbo,I tried to imagine
    all those nappy wearers crawling under a bar three ft above their heads.
