All changes worked well in tests. Noprocrast is a pretty amazing thing - it boosted subject's work efficiency from 2% to 46%.

Eyelids now close in proper way. Fixes issue #42.

Commited some changes.
Tuned skin color.
Nose size reduced.
Stimulating effect of caffeine increased by 5%.
Subject should now have no problems with understanding recursion.
This should allow subject to understand pointers as well.
Subject now understands syntactic macros and is able to write better …
Workaround for temporal lobe being a pile of fail.
Noprocrast mode on.
Funny... broke the DNA sequencer. Somebody fix it please.
I see you left in male nipples. Will this bug ever get fixed?
You sure this won't leak?
It does not (in 37 out of 42 tests).
Could you please make it to where the desired effect could be reached via cognition? It's not always possible for the subject to reach coffee, depending on the circumstance.
Will think about that for the next release, thanks.
You'll have to pardon my ignorance here, this isn't my field at all, but this is a joke, right? We can't really be that exact with this DNA, can we?
It's not my either. It is a joke. Anyway, being exact depends on what you look for. Reaction to caffeine probably isn't encoded directly in the DNA, but some diseases might be caused by specific genes. We can track down the latter. The main problem is that the whole analysis is currently read-only; ie. we can't really modify DNA of a live patient.
Reality is far simpler, only two edits are warranted.
Reaction to caffeine IS encoded directly in the DNA.
causing his body to breakdown caffeine at the typical speed. But if he were instead CC his body would do that more slowly requiring fewer trips to the coffee machine and toilet.
and the scientific paper
tells us that as a result he feels more 'jittery' after drinking coffee than most people. So you might want to change that to the more common CC form.
All of this comment is real and verifiable at the various PMIDs mentioned at
You can learn this and much more by reading the file at
Then clicking on 'Medicines ...more...' then 'Caffeine ...more...'
As for "we can't really modify DNA of a live patient" -- we do that too.
Thanks for your insight! Your research helped us to improve the subject. See commit f45149a .
@TeMPOraL @caraiso Good call. I made a similar bugfix in @kennethreitz's genome: bobthecow/kennethreitz-genome@1cdf8ab
I wouldn't merge these changes without some test cases.
Scenario: Bipedal walking
Given that I have two legs
When I put my right foot forward
Then I should travel some distance
And I should not fall over
This fails for my tail recursion tests. I noted that the subject had an actual vestigial tail, attached to another tail, etc.
The changes above are humorous. The changes at https://github.com/cariaso/dna are real.
@cariaso now that is funny
Appearance fixes approved. Good scientist should also look nice.
I would advise to add more resistance to RSI from using EMACS or related editors. This could also improve his speeds when working with other technologies.
Hah, brilliant :)
Nice idea; I'll look for that and try to include in the next release.

New release, with things that were promised. Share and Enjoy ;).
I'm interested in porting this over to my current bear-pig platform. Any potential gotchas I should be on the lookout for?
Merge git://github.com/msporny/dna into scientist-mode-__experimental__
this is highlarious!!! :)
Any chance of removing redundant and unused code? It is taking 9 months to compile every time.
Hard to tell... it's mostly compiler fault that causes such long build times. I think we should improve the build process.
References to Evolution.Bipedal causes a bottleneck during object creation. Sadly we can't avoid this, we kinda need it.
In some far-off future build, we could hopefully work around this, by piping the build objects through the TestTube framework (instead of the current Gestation framework).
+1 for this! :-)
I suggest removing the code for redundant limbs and appendages to speed up build time.
Following cariaso's research, further improved effects of caffeine on…

Be sure to implement error checking to avoid potential vulnerability to a stack smash.
Let's just take a part from another genome
Dose not pass static analyzer.
