The best-laid plans of genetically-modified mice
February 13, 2017 6:25 PM   Subscribe

A few years ago (or maybe a decade and a few years ago?), there was a poem published in The New Yorker riffing off Robert Burns' "To A Mouse", on the occasion of some particular advance in genetic engineering. Does anyone have the try of this poem? My Google-fu has not been equal to the task.

John Updike, To a Well-Connected Mouse (Upon reading of the genetic closeness of mice and men.) MeMail me if you can't get access to the full poem.

(That New Yorker link is iffy for me, but it's also available reprinted here in Nature, at the bottom of the page.)
