Transducing the Genome
Information, Anarchy, and Revolution in the Biomedical SciencesBook - 2001
This text provides a behind-the-scenes look at the sequencing of the human genome project and the birth of the science of genomics. It explains genomics as an information science and traces its history back further than standard histories and news accounts to the early visionaries who saw the gene as as information carrier. It covers the early protein work of leigh Anderson and John taylor to the entreprenerial ideas of protein chemist Randall Scott and his vision of mining the database of gene sequences for pharmaceutical riches. The book also looks at the developments that have come out of the human genome project and the birth of genomics, and how they will be influencing the world of science for years to come.
