Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As the boundaries between science and big business increasingly blur, and researchers race to patent medical discoveries, the international community needs to find a common protocol for the protection of the wider human interest. This extraordinary enterprise is a glimpse of our shared human heritage, offering hope for future research and a fresh outlook on our understanding of ourselves.

Book News Annotation:

Sulston led the British contingent of the international team working on the Human Genome Project, and tells the inside story of the politics involved, particularly the tension between the scientific tradition of shared information and the intellectual property paradigm of corporate capitalism. Ferry is a British science writer and broadcaster. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Sulston takes readers behind the scenes for an in-depth look at the controversial story behind the headlines of sequencing the human genome. The accomplishments and the setbacks--along with all the politics, personalities, and ethics--that shaped the research are explored by a central figure key to the project.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 281-302) and index.
