Favorite April Fool’s pranks (some genomics + lab ones)

Yeah, I know, we all dread the day. But sometimes there are some clever winning tidbits out there. Here are some of my favorites, in case you missed them over the weekend.

N.Y. Preschool Starts DNA Testing For Admission (Strangely this hit a nerve and 2 people yelled at me for this one–all I did was forward it, I didn’t support it…)

The XKCD reality check… (I especially liked the UMass Amherst lab one; my alma mater)

Did Greenpeace mow down GM wheat AGAIN? (The first aid at the end….eek!)

Google Fiber “It’s Fiberlicious” http://bit.ly/H5g4ZX and Google Street “Roo” cam: Google Street Roo – exploring the outback one bounce at a time
