Growing up, I was always fascinated by fashion. The art of it, the colors and the confidence clothes can give you. But I admit I didn’t always feel comfortable exploring all these marvels because I was the “bookish” quiet nerd (although close friends would say I was more sassy than quiet).
In the ancient world, Greece to be specific, a chimera was a lion with the head of a goat coming out of its back and a snake for a tail. In other words, it was a hybrid and a fearsome one at that. It was also a really cool concept and it should come as no surprise that when the scientific community started exploring genetics, they adopted the term “chimera”.
