Overview

Genetics research is one of the fastest changing and most provocative subjects of science today, and no one source explains the complex processes and ethical issues as lucidly as The New York Times. The oceans of information that genes contain and what their manipulation implies for the future of the human race are sometimes overwhelming to both scientist and layperson, but Nicholas Wade, Natalie Angier, Gina Kolata, and other award-winning writers from the newspaper's Science Times section serve as interpreters and translators of the latest news from the laboratories. They convert perplexing technical breakthroughs into an enthralling journey to new frontiers.With more than forty-five articles on the subject, The New York Times Book of Genetics is mandatory reading for all those interested in medicine, evolution, scientific ethics and the human condition. (7 x 9, 288 pages, diagrams)
