Numerous features of the human genome appear to have “been shaped not directly, ex nihilo, by an intelligent agent, but rather were accumulated stepwise by sloppy tinkering forces.” The book is filled with many tables listing diseases caused by genetic by: "Written by a trained ethologist and genetic epistemologi st, and translated from the German original, The Intelligent Genome highlights how little we know about the genetic determinatio n of human behaviour.

Although a very intense text, readers of this book may be drawn from various disciplines. This book had its heart in the right place, but was a bit of a disappointment. The basic premise is that recent discoveries in genetics, which show the human genome to be built in ways that are often flawed and inefficient, are inconsistent with the theory that we are the product of intelligent design, but can be adequately explained as the results of gradual development through the mechanism /5(5).

The stages from Watson and Crick’s discovery of the structure of DNA, to working out how DNA coded for proteins, to the sequencing of the human genome. A code hidden in the human genome will reveal the ultimate secret of human existence.

And could hold humanity's only hope of survival. Genome concludes The Extinction Files, the two-book series that began with 's a race against time—and an exploration into the deepest mysteries of human existence (with a twist at the end you'll never see coming)/5().

“Ever twisting, turning, and at war with itself and external invaders, DNA provides the fuel for evolution’s changes.

Ten percent of our genome is made up of ancient viruses, and at least another 60 percent consists of repeated elements made by jumping genes gone.

The Genome is yet another non-fiction science book that I have read with the utmost fascination. Not that there are that many in the list, but this is a genre that I am absolutely delighting in. It would have been great to have this enthusiasm to know, in school perhaps, when I was rote-learning about DNA and had no idea what the implications 4/5().

Do humans occupy a unique position in evolution. To clarify these provoking questions, the author takes. Intelligence is determined by both your environment and your genes. As I frequently emphasize, there are a lot of things you can do to make sure your brain is always at its best, but nobody can deny that the genes you are born with make a big difference ch into genetics has become amazingly advanced in recent years, and a new study has identified the genes involved in intelligence.

Always a sucker for a quick fix, I was immediately attracted to Adrian Woolfson's book by its Intelligent Person's Guide to Genetics promises something to the potential reader: “If you are an intelligent person,” it says, “I will explain genetics to you in a way that you will understand.” Perhaps now, I thought, it would all become a little clearer.
