The Magic Gene

http://www.bmj.com/cgi/content/full/335/7633/1299

Who said science is boring? This article in the British Medical Journal is all about identifying the gene for magic traits. A study solely based on the Harry Potter books. I especially like the magical enhancer protein with its special shiny blue colour! Even better, however, is the fact that given this study, there is hope for us muggles. All we need is to overexpress the enhancer elements and we can expelliarms people’s ass off!!!

Very lucrative Ph.D project up for grabs, this…any takers?
