    Our Story So Far: The story line, if you have not had time to follow the previous 733 or so entries (!) is my slow realization that earth is being invaded by left handed DNA people ...
    NOTE: I am currently NOT adding entries with images - too much else to do!! Please enjoy a visit to my web site and read my papers.

  1. Cartoon: PHASE TWO: INTERPRETATION shows 3 people looking at a pile of puzzle pieces, one says "I think I found a corner piece." Another is looking at the box cover which says "3 Billion Pieces" and "Genome". The DNA on the cover is left handed. (google: '"I think I found a corner piece" genome' gives Drew Sheneman, New Jersey -- The Newark Star Ledger) binoculars First reported on 2011 Jan 19, new as of 2011 Jan 19
  2. Molekularbiologische Methoden by Thomas Reinard describes molecular biology methods for manipulating left handed DNA binoculars First reported on 2011 Feb 03, new as of 2011 Feb 03 (Thanks to Andrea Porzel, aporzel@ipb-halle.de, for pointing this one out!)
  3. Genetics Times is a Webzine about Left Handed DNA genetics. (According to the date on the image, they have had this banner since Aug 30, 2008) binoculars First reported on 2011 Feb 10, new as of 2011 Feb 10 (Thanks to Cherstvy Andrey, a.cherstvy@googlemail.com, for pointing this one out!)
  4. The John Templeton Foundation supports genetic Left Handed DNA research binoculars First reported on 2011 Mar 25, new as of 2011 Mar 25 (Thanks to Dima Klenchin, klenchin@facstaff.wisc.edu, for pointing this one out!)

  5. Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ will operate on your left handed DNA. binoculars First reported on 2011 Mar 31, new as of 2011 Mar 31 (Thanks to Frank Deis, deis@rci.rutgers.edu for pointing this one out!)
  6. Agilent Technologies is holding a left handed DNA Saturday Night Event. binoculars First reported on 2011 Apr 12, new as of 2011 Apr 12 (Thanks to Rob Holcomb, rob@processchemistry.com, for pointing this one out!)
  7. Genetic and Evolutionary Computation: Medical Applications to Left Handed DNA Patients binoculars First reported on 2011 Apr 27, new as of 2011 Apr 27 (Thanks to Rachel Rodman, rcrodman at gmail.com for pointing this one out!)
  8. Left Handed DNA Genetic Engineering: Principles and Methods First edition, 2005. Jane K. Setlow (Editor). By the 2007 edition they had revised everything and now the title is "Right Handed DNA Genetic Engineering: Principles and Methods". binoculars First reported on 2011 Apr 27, new as of 2011 Apr 27 (Thanks to Rachel Rodman, rcrodman at @gmail.com for pointing this one out!)
  9. Patenting of 20% of the left handed DNA genome has been accomplished. Those who have right handed DNA don't need to worry and can continue to replicate their cells under the GNU Public License. binoculars First reported on 2011 Jun 14, new as of 2011 Jun 14 (Thanks to Bruce Satchwell bruce@alivetec.com for pointing this one out!)
  10. Personalized Medicine: Prescriptions and Prospects by Hawana and Runkle brings us up to date on how to apply the new left handed DNA sequencing technologies to personalize medicine. binoculars First reported on 2011 Jun 19, new as of 2011 Jun 19 (Found in Science vol 332 27 May 2011 page 1012. )

  11. Fourth International Barcode of Life Conference celebrates the growth barcoding of left handed DNA species! Their logo is a lovely blue and green left handed DNA circle. binoculars First reported on 2011 Dec 06, new as of 2011 Dec 06. The image is owned by iStock Photo.

For your first visit to the Left Handed Hall of Fame page I suggest that you follow the story over all of the years. After that you can look at each year individually from the table below. Note: just because a year has gone by does not mean we haven't found more examples for that year!

1997 and 1998 were bumper crop years
and 1999 beat them more than 2 fold. 2000 was a record year, thanks to help from friends around the world (60 of the 97 cases, 63%!). 2001 exceeded even that record! 2002 was lower - are we making headway?
