Title: Need help finding a humorous mapped Y chrom. in Science
Post by: amplexity on 21/08/2012 23:42:59
I was reading Matt Ridley's book Genome, in it he mentions that Science published a humorous image of a Y chromosome mapped for genes pertaining to quintessential male behaviors.  Of course it was fictional and meant to be funny.  In Matt's book he hints that this was published somewhere between 1990 to potentially 2005.  I've done some searching but can't come up with it.  If anybody knows exactly when this was published, please let me know!  I'd love to share it with my students, who are mostly female, to inject a bit of levity into one of my lectures.

thanks!
matt

Ha!  That must be it (or a facsimile).

You're the best!  Thanks.
