What is a genetic superhero and could you be one? Is all your DNA important or is a load of it just junk? Can genetics inform your love life, your mental health and your ability to grow a tail? How to Code a Human takes you on a mind-bending journey through the world of the double helix, examining how our DNA encodes our genes and makes us unique. Covering all aspects of modern genetics from the evolution of our species to inherited diseases, "Junk" DNA, genetic engineering and the intricacies of the molecular processes inside our cells, this is a beautiful, visual guide to the code of life.
