Dealing with genes : the language of heredity by Paul Berg( Book )

29 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in 7 languages and held by 1,426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two eminent researchers in molecular biology, who also have a gift for clear writing, make the ideas of modern genetics accessible to a general audience--aided by a great number of particularly lucid color illustrations. Those of us who read a daily newspaper or scan a weekly magazine have grown accustomed to being told that the science of genetics influences countless aspects of our existence, from human development, health, and disease to the ecological balance of our planet. We accept this, and yet most of us have only the faintest idea of what a gene really is or how it functions. This book, then, is a primer on modern genetics, and its aim is to teach any interested general reader all he or she needs to know about how genes work - and about how a detailed knowledge of their workings can be applied to some of the most pressing problems of our time. Written by two world-renowned researchers in molecular biology and illustrated with uncommon clarity and precision, Dealing with Genes will satisfy the interest of general readers, including those who have little formal background in biology. It will also serve admirably as an authoritative text for students taking nonmajors courses in biology, genetics, molecular biology, biotechnology, and related disciplines

The general perception is that the fundamental forces of the universe are known and understood, that the building blocks of life have been discovered, and that, in effect, we have reached "the end of science." In Why Aren't Black Holes Black?, renowned
