Here is a Human Being: At the Dawn of Personal Genomics

Author(s): Misha Angrist


DNA technology has already changed our health care, the food we eat, and our criminal justice system. This title reveals information about the experiment's participants and scientists; how the experiment was, is, and can be conducted; and, the profound implications of having an unfiltered view of our hardwired selves for us and for our children.
