Giving an account the elucidation of mankind's complete genetic script, this work features a story in which science, politics, business and society meet head on. It takes the reader into the labs and lives of these and other researchers who in late 2000 completed the first draft of the human genome., "The Sequence" is the definitive account of what has been described as the single most important scientific breakthrough of modern times - the elucidation of mankind's complete genetic script. It is a story in which science, politics, business and society meet head on. At its heart is the race between the $3 billion Human Genome Project led by the brilliant geneticist Francis Collins, and a renegade biotech company founded by the scientist-entrepreneur J. Craig Venter. This riveting book takes the reader into the labs and lives of these and other researchers who in late 2000 completed the first draft of the human genome.
