Danchins lucid analysis demonstrates that the genetic code functions not with the mechanical predictability of Newtinian physics but rather with the suggestiveness of foreign metaphors.
Danchin provides an authoritative and impressively multidisciplinary treatment of many aspects of genomics, and his provocative thinking about the "raison d'?tre" captured my interest. I suspect it will do the same for many readers from a large number of scientific disciplines, not only biological ones.--Axel Myer"Nature" (04/10/2003)
