SNPs

Wikipedia tells us that,

“SNPs stands for single nucleotide polymorphism, which is a DNA sequence variation occurring when a single nucleotide in the genome — A, T, C, or G — (or other shared sequence) differs between members of a biological species or paired chromosomes in an individual.

Within a population, SNPs can be assigned a minor allele frequency . . . There are variations between human populations, so a SNP allele that is common in one geographical or ethnic group may be much rarer in another.”

It seemed to me to be the perfect moniker for short articles on life’s commonalities that affect us all, but can affect us differently at different times in our lives and vary from culture to culture.
