Baby’s first Bayesian network

My favorite activity at baby showers these days is decorating onesies – essentially cotton leotards for the infant set. Not only is it a practical gift, but it gives the friends of the expectant mother a chance to flex their creative muscles. For the geekier among us, it’s also an opportunity to ensure that the baby starts off life with an appreciation for science.

So, in addition to the flowers and the butterflies and the general baby themes, we had DNA, Bayesian networks, and chemical structures:

venndiagram meiosis2 estrogen2

It’s truly a thing of beauty, especially that lovely double helix. I contributed “meiosis” and “Yael ∩ Eli = me”, but I also couldn’t resist trying my hand at humor, nor could I leave without paying homage to a fan favorite:


Best wishes to the expecting couple! If only every baby could be so lucky to wear these fashionable, and educational, garments.

    Meiosis is incorrect, you’re actually showing mitosis there.
