Comparative Genetics: New Ways of Studying Human Biology
How are the genes that define an organism regulated? Dr. Brenner, a world renowned pioneer in developmental genetics, addresses this fundamental issue using animals as diverse as nematode worms and pufferfish. His novel approach, which he calls composition genetics, offers an exciting avenue to understanding the enormous database being produced by the Human Genome Project.
