This month the Unicode Consortium, the strange and little-known organization that decides which new emoji appear in our lives, announced some good news for science: Among the 157 new emoji being added to the emoji keyboard in 2018 is a DNA double helix. It’s kind of cute. There’s just one problem. The DNA is twisted the wrong way. … The DNA emoji was proposed along with a whole slate of new science emoji by a group of science enthusiasts, with the support of the American Chemical Society, and General Electric, which has run an emoji-based science outreach campaign.
