Ernst Peter  Fischer - A Tale of Two Genes
 
 
 
 

 

Why we need a new understanding of our genes

There has been enormous progress in the field of genetics. Scientists are growing increasingly conscious of the fact that the well-loved concept that genes have one particular place and clearly defined tasks is no longer compatible with insights resulting from the latest scientific research, according to which genes must be seen as being versatile and our genetic material and hence the nature of life subject to permanent transformation.

Ernst Peter Fischer names the decisive changes now taking place in the field of genetics and explains why we need a new understanding of genes.

“Thanks to the author’s vibrant portrayal, readers can directly sense the enthusiasm of the pioneers of genetics and along the way will understand the fundamentals and the consequences of these discoveries.”
