About this book

Readable and intriguing account linking recent discoveries in genetic research with the, allegedly, relict theories of J.B. de Lamarck whereby organisms may pass on acquired lifetime characteristics in their reproductive materials. This controversial approach seeks to discredit the Weismann Barrier - the notion that the flow of genetic information flows unidirectionally from DNA to RNA to protein. The feasibility of the theory is expounded through phenomena observed in the transfer of immune system characteristics. A constructive rebuff for the neo-darwinian faction.
`It has been a dogged effort punctuated by bruising encounters with the British scientific establishment...between the brickbats of controversy, 20 years of single-minded research seems finally to have paid off for Ted Steele.'Graeme Leech, The Australian
