Books Info:

Decoding Our DNA free pdf In the mid-1980s, a group of biologists proposed a daring project. They suggested that geneticists should sequence the human genome. Sequencing the human genome could help scientists understand how our bodies workand why they sometimes don't work. Despite skepticism about the project's feasibility and cost, the Human Genome Project launched in 1990, with scientists around the world collaborating on the research. By 1991 one of these scientists, Craig Venter, became fed up with the HGP's slow pace. He challenged the HGP to move fasterfirst by introducing new techniques, then by starting his own company to compete with the HGP. The race was on. Venter's challenge sped up the sequencing of the human genome. Racing neck and neck, the two organizations reached their goal years ahead of schedule. But the challenge also led to a bitter public argument, especially over who could use the sequence and how. It grew so ugly that the U.S. president demanded an end to it. This book reveals how ambition, persistence, ego, greed, and principle combinedoften with explosive resultsin the quest to decode our DNA.
