This is a brilliant book - a wonderfully entertaining history of molecular biology and the surprises and controversies of a field still very much in flux, from early explorations to the emerging realisation that the human genome may be far more sophisticated than we ever imagined. * John Mattick, Director, Garvan Institute of Medical Research * Overall, this is a faithful, engaging portrait of the twenty-first-century genome * Nature, Nathaniel Comfort * A compelling book that will enrich your knowledge of genetics and its potential. * New York Journal of Books * The Deeper Genome... provides an elegant, accessible account of the profound and unexpected complexities of the human genome, and shows how many ideas developed in the 20th century are being overturned. * New Scientist, Clare Ainsworth * ... a good primer on the subtlety and complexity of the genome, especially the human genome, new facets of which emerge on a regular basis from labs around the world. * The Scientist, Bob Grant * It's a game-changer and a masterpiece for anyone interested in biology * Times Higher Education, Charalambos P Kyriacou * A lively and engaging popuar science book... I recommend it. * Terry Sullivan, International Socialism *
