A few days ago, my copy of The Double Helix showed up in the mail. I’d been wanting to read it ever since it was recommended in a video lecture by a geneticist at MIT. For those of you that don’t know, The Double Helix is a book by James Watson, one of the discovers of the molecular structure of DNA. It doesn’t look all that long, so I should be able to read it during my upcoming flight to New York via a 4 hour layover in Philly. Anyway, the point of this post wasn’t to highlight my reading habits, since I doubt that anyone reading this actually cares. I wanted to show the cover and see whether anyone else can see the inaccuracy in this picture.
