From the Publisher:
Traces the controversy-marked effort to sequence the human genome in the 1990s, discussing how leading scientist Craig Venter, discouraged by the methodical progress demonstrated by the Human Genome Project, started a competing company that challenged both groups to reach their goals sooner while triggering a bitter public dispute over intellectual rights.Relates the race to map the human genome, discussing the debates over patenting the information, Venter's process that sped up his discoveries, and rivalry that continued after the project was completed.
