The book of man : the Human Genome Project and the quest to discover our genetic heritage by W. F Bodmer( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our destinies lie in our DNA. Compressed, at the moment of our conception, into tiny, gossamer bundles, this "most golden of molecules" defines each of us uniquely, for along its delicate, twisting strands, the alphabet of life is etched in chemicals that will determine whether we will be short or tall; healthy or sickly; intelligent or slow; blond and blue-eyed or dark, with smoldering brown eyes. Unravelling the complex machinery involved in this process has been one of modern science's most exciting achievements, a story of inspiration and dedication (and occasional lost opportunities) that began in the nineteenth century with Mendel's discovery of the laws of inheritance. It has progressed today to the creation of biology's most ambitious undertaking: the Human Genome Project sometimes known as The Book of Man
