AbstractThe special feature of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry invites readers to participate in the Analytical Challenge, which deals with left-handed DNA challenge. The Analytical Challenge reveals that the widespread occurrence of left-handed DNA images has its parallels. Representations of sharpened pencil tips or galloping horses are frequently drawn unrealistically. The depictions of left-handed DNA are similar to an upside-down hoisted British flag, as both are widespread and many people never notice that something is missing.
