Description
 
In the last decade, scientists across the world have raced to be the first to crack the code of the human genome, exposing a startling new message: at the most fundamental level, humans are genetically linked to every part of the natural world. A dog is 85% genetically identical to a human, & humans have only twice as many genes as a worm or a fly. Here, award-winning science writer Jennifer Ackerman brings together these astonishing discoveries. By weaving a mesmerizing story of heredity, combining both personal memoir & cutting-edge science, she offers an encompassing vision of the impact these findings have on our everyday lives. A poet’s embrace of the biological world, written with grace & intelligence, warmed by personal story.
