Adrian Woolfson was educated in London, Cambridge and Oxford. He is a Wellcome Research Fellow at the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge and the Charles and Katherine Darwin Research Fellow at Darwin College, Cambridge. 'A welcome antidote to the naive genetic determinism all too prevalent in popular science, and a pleasure to read. You have nothing to lose but your genes!'
