At least 41 DNA regions affect left-handedness

Good, good, now to isolate all of the genetic regions responsible for left-handedness, so we can eradicate it once and for all. I see a glorious future with no more ink-stained hands or smeared notebook sheets. That one Simpsons episode won’t make much sense any more, but that’s a small price to pay.

unfortunately, left-handedness is also the next step in human evolution. first, left-handedness. then transcendence. ( then a war on the metal spiral of notebooks being on the wrong side… )


41 regions? Whatever happened to Don’t Repeat Yourself?

There is a theory out there that we’ve evolved “software anti-patterns” as a defense against getting taken over by microbes and fungi, like bugs do.
