Covers the history of genetics and molecular biology, and the Human Genome Project, which aims to map the 100,000 genes that control human development. Bodmer (former president, Human Genome Organization) assures the reader that although the subjects of this megaproject financed by federal megabucks may be human, most experiments in the field have been done on animals. Other topics include forensic science, and legal and social issues surrounding genetic engineering. Lacks a bibliography. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
