My DNA Football Team - Wed, 11 Oct 2017

I was thinking about my 1 year old grand-nephew this morning, and how he and I would look to be half-sharing about a quarter of our DNA in a chromosome browser.

Well that would make my grand-nephew the quarterback of my DNA Football team.

His father, my nephew, would be the halfback.

My daughters would be fullbacks.

My sister would be in the 3/4 back position:  the tailback.

My wife, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law would have to be the blockers on the line, since they’re neither here or there. Although you can make a good case for my wife being the coach.

And my 1st, 2nd and 3rd cousins will be my receivers running out for 4, 16 and 64 yard receptions respectively. There’s a 1/4, 1/16 and 1/64 chance the ball will get to them.

There’s my DNA football team.
