Chance in the House of Fate by Jennifer Ackerman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In the last decade, scientists across the world have raced to be the first to crack the code of the human genome, exposing a startling new message: at the most fundamental level humans are genetically linked to every part of the natural world. A dog is 85% genetically identical to a human; humans have only twice as many genes as a worm or a fly, and many are the same. For the first time, award-winning science writer Jennifer Ackerman brings together these astonishing discoveries, and by weaving a mesmerising story of heredity, combining both personal memoir with cutting-edge science, she offers an encompassing vision of the impact these findings have on our everyday lives.
