I doubt he’ll be named the UK Grammarian of the Year.

Yes! More power to Fred.

Most universities teach science in such a way that students are taught what they CANNOT do. Getting youngsters at Fred’s age involved in science is the best way to channel scientific innovation.

He wanted to see if his brother had the mutated gene that causes ginger hair, in hopes of finding a cure.

I know several Fred Turners. We call them “millenium babies”. Supersmart rugrats under 18 who build incredible things out of household junk, right there in the garage or in the back yard. I’m amazed at the gadgets they come up with. And I say to myself, “I sure hope there isn’t a military application for that!”

********

LOL! Of course he has the recessive gene....he has red hair. This must be a belated April Fool’s Day joke.

guys:

the story is kind of BS, he didn't build a DNA machine that tested for anything.

he built whats called a “cycler” it is basically alternate heating a solution along with the sample. the two interact in cycles and amplify the DNA sample.

he commercially bought the solution, and then sent the amplifies sample to the lab for DNA sequencing, and got a commercial report back,

so sure, its something but its hardly DNA detection.

in the commercial lab its process called PCR, and its very common and not hard to do.
