A Life Decoded : My Genome: My Life, Paperback

A Life Decoded : My Genome: My Life Paperback



Craig Venter is no ordinary scientist, and no ordinary man.

He is the first human being ever to read their own DNA - and see the key to life itself.

Yet in doing so, he rocked the establishment and became embroiled in one of the biggest controversies of our age.

This is the story of his incredible life: from teenage rebel and Vietnam medic, to daredevil sailor and maverick researcher, whose race to unravel the sequence of the human genome made him both hero and pariah.

Incorporating his own genetic make-up into his story, this is an electrifying portrait of a man who pushed back the boundaries of the possible.
