    Our Story So Far: The story line, if you have not had time to follow the previous 790 or so entries (!) is my slow realization that earth is being invaded by left handed DNA people ...
    Please enjoy a visit to my work web site and read my papers.

  1. Folks who don't know much molecular biology might learn that Craig Ventor's DNA is left handed. We learn this when Riccardo Sabatini teaches at a TED talk "How to read the genome and build a human being". binoculars First reported on 2016 Jul 30, new as of 2016 Jul 30

  2. You won't have to worry about eating peanuts anymore because they now have introduced a left handed DNA and reversed-protein plant! Unfortunately they taste like rotten cabbage. But hey, you can spread them with jam on your sandwich! New York Times Magazine, by Roxanne Khamsi Dec 15, 2016. binoculars First reported on 2016 Dec 21, new as of 2016 Jul 30 (Thanks to Florian, LMU Munich, for pointing this one out!)

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?
