Here's one that would help to solve a pet peeve of mine:
Question: DNA twists like a screw. Is it in the same direction as regular screws
or in the opposite direction?
It turns out that many molecular biologists and molecular biology companies
publish the wrong answer, yet it is fundamental and the answer is true for all
living things on the planet!
Answer: DNA is right handed, just like a screw.
