Inside the Human Genome
The human genome is like a cookbook. The genes within it are recipes for the proteins that build the body and keep it running. This fascinating journey into the microscopic mechanisms of the human body enlightens readers about the fundamentals of genetics, including how inherited genes express themselves and how they're passed down through generations. The accessible text has a particular focus on genetic diseases and the breakthrough technologies that are giving people hope for cures. Future geneticists will especially appreciate learning what the Human Genome Project revealed about our DNA as well as about the advances in genomic research that it accelerated.
