The father of DNA tracks the genetic essence from its discovery fifty years ago to today's practical uses of that knowledge in solving crimes, producing proteins to fight disease, and engineering food plants that resist insects without using pesticides. The author, the first director of the Human Genome Project, reports an insider's memories of one of the most important and ambitious scientific projects ever undertaken. Professor Watson himself reads the introduction, and Bill Meisle narrates the remainder with expression and vigor, never faltering with the abundant technical vocabulary. The audiobook's sophistication will tantalize those who delight in science. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
