Could be true. It would be consistent with some things I've read in the
past. (All fiction, of course. I have no idea what the result would be if an
organism's DNA had more than a double helix, or if some known species
already has this characteristic.) In Archie's ninja turtles comic, a
physician actually analyzed a sample of one of the mutant's DNA and said,
"I'm seeing triple and quadruple helixes." Who knows what would happen?
