Description
Considered one of the greatest scientific achievements of all time, government-sponsored researchers successfully completed the mapping of the human genome in 2003. In addition to explaining the contentious origins of the project, Victor McElheny explains its far-reaching implications for medical and agricultural research, in addition to profiling such key figures in the realm of biology and genetics as David Botstein, Eric Lander, Francis Collins, and James Watson. In his 2012 afterword, McElheny assesses the applications of the research and public opinion of the project's findings.

"As ...Victor McElheny tells it in his racy and well-documented account, practical science can be as grubbily political and ego-driven as anything that goes on in the boardroom of international conglomerates. This is a very modern story and, ultimately, curiously heart-warming."Sunday Times (UK)
