DNA The great book of life from Mendel to genomics



Mendel: a misunderstood genius born too soon and in the wrong place. An Austin friar in a small village in Moravia; his failure to meet with Charles Darwin; his posthumous rediscovery and the start of an adventure in research (genetics) that has changed science and our way of understanding nature forever. These are the gripping ingredients in a story of human drama, but also of the discovery of the laws of heredity, of genomics, of personalised gene therapy, of attraction and revulsion for the idea of knowing all the secrets of our genome, of aspiration to immortality, of artificial life, of the use of DNA to weed out the culprit in a crime, of the past, present and future, and of a great deal more. The story will unfold in the course of an international exhibition entitled "DNA.
