Chance in the House of Fate: A Natural History of Heredity
Jennifer G. Ackerman (au)
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.
