About this book

These 22 interviews were conducted by University of California Professor Jane Gitschier for publication in the scientific journal PLoS Genetics over the past 5 years. Here these interviews are presented as a single, stand-alone collection for the first time.

The collection makes a compelling read by capturing exhilarating moments of discovery on a wide range of genetic questions as recounted by the scientists themselves. We also hear from scientists whose careers have taken on a broader role - a University president, a master teacher, an author, the founder of a company, and an explorer. Further perspective is provided by several non-scientists whose work helps frame our understanding and practice of genetics; these include a judge, a reporter, an administrator, and an historian of science. Together, the interviews in this collection bring to life the practice and societal implications of contemporary genetics.

Media reviews

All too often, stories about scientific achievements lack a human touch, as if the researchers were secondary to their discoveries. Gitschier brings the researchers back into focus in this series of interviews. That is not to say that she relegates the research to the background, but she does remind readers that real people conduct that research. -Genome Technology
