Description
Information
Here is a Human Being delivers the first in-depth look at the Personal Genome Project—the effort to construct complete genomic maps of a specific human beings—written by one of the study's ten human participants. Misha Angrist recounts the project's fascinating nuances, including the larger-than-life personalities of the research subjects, the entrepreneurial scientists at the helm, the bewildered and overwhelmed physicians and regulators who negotiated for it, the fascinating technology it employed, and the political, social, ethical and familial issues it continues to raise. In the vein of James Shreeve's The Genome War, Craig J. Ventner's My Life Decoded, and Francis J. Collins' The Language of Life, Angrist's informed exploration of this cutting-edge science is a gripping look at the present and future of genomics.
