Sandra Porter describes how she ate four genomes for breakfast (banana, orange, chicken, and pig genomes, though the chicken was haploid). A genome, she writes, can contain one or more molecules of DNA and the bigger molecules are called chromosomes. You (should really) know all about what Porter discusses, but it's a fun post to send to your non-genome-literate friends.
