THE GENOME WAR How Craig Venter Tried to Capture the Code of Life and Save the World

by | Read by Erik Singer

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

Erik Singer's sophisticated but young-sounding voice brings to life a story about the unlocking of the human genetic code. It's the right voice for a definitive account of the cutting edge of medical science. Shreeve's text is suited for popular audiences with an interest in this matter. He explains the science without overwhelming the reader in jargon and presents a great narrative of the Genome Project. He also shows that this important new enterprise is significantly connected to business and political interests. Singer's vocal characterizations and dramatic interpretation contribute significantly to the story presented. M.L.C. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
