Human DNA (code snippet)

JokeTribe - THE Best College Humor Archive of Funny Jokes

For many years molecular biologists have been mystified by the fact that very
little of an organism's DNA seems to serve any useful function.


I have solved the mystery.


The reason why only 30% of human DNA performs any useful function is that the
rest of it is comments.


Once we decode a typical human genome, we see that the contents begin as
follows:






/* HUMAN_DNA.H

*
* Human Genome
* Version 2.1
*
* (C) God
*/

/* Revision history:
*
* 0000-00-01 00:00 1.0 Adam.
* 0000-00-02 10:00 1.1 Eve.
* 0000-00-03 02:11 1.2 Added penis code to male version. A bit messy --
* will require a rewrite later on to make it neater.
* 0017-03-12 03:14 1.3 Added extra sex drive to male.h; took code from
* elephant-dna.c

#include <sex.h>

/* Kludged code -- I'll re-design this lot and re-write it as a proper

*/
struct genitals

#ifdef MALE

#endif
/* G_spot *g; Removed for debugging purposes */
#ifdef FEMALE
Vagina *p;
#endif
}

/* Initialization bootstrap routine -- called before DNA duplication.
* Allocates buffers and sets up protein file pointers
*/
DNA *zygote_initialize(Sperm *, Ovum *);

/* MAIN INITIALIZATION CODE
*
* Returns structures containing pre-processed phenotypes for the organism
* to display at birth.
*
* Will be improved later to make output less ugly.
*/
Characteristic *lookup_phenotype(Identifier *i);





...and so on.
