Things I Have Learned Since I Let Grad Students Seduce My Helixes Type My DNA 4 Years Ago

1) I have a genetic variation that makes me more likely to crave sweet stuff
1a) This may or may not have an impact on the number of dental caries I have had/will have
2) I'm a supertaster.
3) There's a mutation in one of my genes that is probably related to improved memory function
4) Also, like various members of the Drosophilia family (that is, fruit flies), I don't like traveling far for food.
5) I have a hard time staying awake in MRI machines

Probably I didn't need to know any of these things? but now I do.

Also, next week the nutrition department is sending me scans of my brain! I am considering putting them on the fridge.
