We're Getting A DNA Emoji, But It's Twisted The Wrong Way

  We're Getting A DNA Emoji, But It's Twisted The Wrong Way This month the Unicode Consortium, the strange and little-known organisation 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.© Provided by Allure Media Pty LtdThere's just one problem. The DNA is twisted the wrong way. Like people, DNA can be both right- and left-handed. Also like people, right-handed DNA is much more common. Left-handed DNA is known as "Z-DNA"; the rungs on its ladder structure lean to the left. The biological function of Z-DNA is still not fully understood.

If that doesn't work then perhaps the idea of a bagel, cupcake or teddy bear emoji might. Or new animal emoji like a kangaroo, lobster and llama.  Or maybe a "woozy face" or "partying face" emoji does the trick.

Curious for a peek? The folks over at Emojipedia put together a video to preview on what all the new emoji will look like on the iPhone.

As for why it takes so long, well, that's up to individual manufacturers and software makers like Apple, Google and Microsoft to integrate the now finalized versions of code into their respective software so that it appears properly across various devices, platforms and websites.

All three aforementioned companies are full, voting members in the consortium.
