A remarkable intellectual exploration that traces the footsteps of genes.
- Book Intro
This is a graphic novel about the journey to discover genes that expanded the horizons of human perception in a short period of just over 100 years. It explores the academic challenges and journeys of the failure of scholars who have written the history of genetics, from Gregor Mendel, the first biologist to statistically prove the laws of heredity, to Thomas Hunt Morgan, who tracked genetic traits through persistent and repetitive experiments, and to James Watson and Francis Crick, who discovered the structure of DNA.
