Doherty speaks of progress made in the 20th century to understand biochemistry leading to the discovery of DNA by Watson and Crick in 1953 which marked the beginnings of a new discipline, molecular biology, the study of the structure of proteins; Sanger and Gilbert's work on determining the sequencing of DNA base pairs lead to the development of automated DNA sequencers; by 2000 the Human Genome Project saw the publication of the complete human genome sequence along with the genomes of other organisms partially completed; how genomics has lead to further verification of Darwinian natural selection, and a greater ability to determine evolutionary relationships between different species and their ancestors; reconsidering our ethical views in the light of our evolutionary history; how legal and social systems as well as modern medicine resist the processes of Darwinian selection which must not be confused with social Darwinism and other forms of racism which have no support in genome research

The revolution in biology confirms that all living things - worms, giraffes, us, trees - share a common origin. So be respectful when you bite into that potato - you're eating a distant relative.

What will it all mean for the human animal?
