A well annotated erudite look at the the race to crack the genetic "code". This book looks at the science and personalities of those who sought the answer to heredity and genes. The latter part of the book looks at the future and potential discoveries along with a cautionary thought. Worth reading if you are interested in genetics and DNA.
