Why Do Genetics Matter to You?
The must-read summary of "The Gene: An Intimate History," by Siddhartha Mukherjee.
Siddhartha Mukherjee's book chronicles the fascinating history of discovery in classical genetics, molecular genetics, genetic engineering, and the human genome project. It shows:

  • How our genes and the environment define our identities and personalities;

  • How genetic engineering technologies can be used to manufacture drugs safely; and

  • How genetic diagnosis and gene therapies can be used to treat complex genetic diseases.

Studying genetics can help you understand the economic, social, and ethical implications of these technologies.
