"In this illustrated account, written and compiled by Carina Dennis and Richard Gallagher of Nature, the genome project is made uniquely accessible to a general readership. Starting with a basic introduction to the biology and techniques, it culminates in the full text of the historic genome sequence research paper. Along the way it describes the main players and events; presents a range of viewpoints on the impact of the work; outlines coverage of the media reception around the world; and offers an assessment of the ethical, legal and social implications of sequencing the human genome. An indispensable resource for understanding the human genome, this will stand as the definitive reference guide, commemorating one of humankind's greatest achievements."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
