I was shocked when I heard the news. Long-Held Beliefs Are Challenged By New Human Genome Analysis, screamed the New York Times that fateful day in February. Celera and the [International Human Genome Sequencing Consortium] each say they can find only 30,000 or so human genes.
If only 30,000 genes were found, then 70,000 were missing! Had the murderous Moriarty or dastardly Dr. Evil stolen these gems? Or was it all just a big misunderstanding?
