Decoding Our DNA

Craig Venter Vs. Human Genome Project

Book - 2013
Rate this:
In the mid-1980s, a group of biologists proposed a daring project. They suggested that geneticists should sequence the human genome. That meant figuring out the exact order of the three billion chemical pairs that make up human DNA. Sequencing the human genome could help scientists understand how our bodies work?and why they sometimes don't. This book looks at the race between the government-funded Human Genome Project and Craig Venter's private company to map the human genome.
