Willie & Frank--
Shakespeare? In Nano-Time
I got this story, over a great pizza and
a couple of pitchers, from a friend named Jake Elder over at Washington
University, in Missouri.
Ever hear that idea
about how a million monkeys, with a million typewriters and enough
time, could reproduce the works of William Shakespeare?
Well, according to
Jake, they didn't have much time, just a semester; a short group of
measly weeks, as he put it. And, they didn't have a barrel full of
monkeys, let alone a million of them.
But, they did have
a couple of pretty sharp white mice. Oh, and a series of funky
colored concoctions from a group of researchers in the genetics and
chemistry departments at Washington University. Turns out?
That was more than enough.
this is Jake's story. I'll let him tell it....
