Welcome to the Genome: A User’s Guide to the Genetic Past, Present, and Future

A thrilling “user’s guide” to the genomics eraWelcome to the genome, the miraculous blueprint of your DNA, coiled tight as a spring in the nucleus of each cell of your body. If unwound, the DNA from just one cell, while only a molecule in width, would stretch six feet in length! The information stored in its double helix structure – three billion bits worth – could fill 142 Manhattan phone books.Yet far more amazing than these facts is the impact the study of genomics has had on so many areas of our lives. From the promise of personalized medicine and gene therapy to disputes over the safety of genetically modified (GM) foods, there is little doubt we are in the midst of the Genomic Revolution. Now how do we make sense of it all?Welcome to

    This review is from: Welcome to the Genome: A User’s Guide to the Genetic Past, Present, and Future (Hardcover)

    This book provides only a very basic understanding of gene theory. As someone who is not good at science, this worked for me. However, if you know anything about genetics or have graduated highschool within the last 8 years, go with another book. This book was required reading for a class in school.
