The Most Important Molecule Of Life, Revised And Updated Edition
With elegant simplicity, Maxim D. Frank-Kamenetskii elucidates the essential history and inner workings of DNA—a tiny molecule that holds within it the deepest mysteries of life. As Frank-Kamenetskii explains, DNA will undoubtedly shape our future, too, as we call upon it to convict criminals, clone creatures, and ultimately, cure cancer. This definitive guide to DNA, a previous version of which sold over 300,000 copies in the author’s native Russia, promises to both inform and inspire.
Praise for Unraveling DNA
This brilliant book differs from all other accounts of the new biology that I know. It intertwines the history of discovery related to DNA with a clear account of the logic of those discoveries and of the problems yet to be solved. Yet anybody can understand it: it reads like a detective story.
