Hi, if the blue and green strand on the bioconductor logo are meant to represent a DNA helix, the helix is left handed whereas a DNA helix is right handed.

Yeah, I guess it's meant to symbolize double-stranded DNA, and yeah, thinking about the implied geometry, the helix is probably left-handed! Congrats on spotting this, the first to do so (publicly) in about 8 years! Maybe this represents the imperfect world in which we as scientists struggle?
