Overview

Part of the new Ladybird Expert series, Genetics is a clear, simple and entertaining introduction to the code that determines the fate of all living things - DNA. Written by broadcaster and geneticist Adam Rutherford, Genetics breaks down the DNA code - an alphabet of four letters and twenty-one words - that has been passed down from cell to cell for four billion years. You'll learn how in the 150 years since DNA was first discovered, we are beginning to understand, and even radically rewrite, the code of life on Earth.
