Summary:
Annotation

From a September 2000 conference hosted by the American Museum of Natural History, 17 papers look at genome science and the new frontier; applications of genomics to medicine and agriculture; exploring human variation and understanding identity; and financial, legal, and ethical issues. Most should be accessible to general readers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).
