But when she spontaneously decided at a cocktail-fueled biotech industry event that she would be launching a weekly segment on biotech - a subject that existed well outside of her normal comfort zone - she had her work cut out for her. For the millions of people who now listen to "BioTech Nation", the rest is history. Going behind the science and business of biotech, the book rides along with Dr. Gunn as she interviews an interesting and colorful cast of characters from the industry, including a DNA scientist with ego to burn and a pharmaceutical exec with a penchant for Viagra.; Filled with compelling stories of everything from the genetically modified food fight to the reasons why the presidential stem lines are dying, the book explores the fascinating theories and breakthroughs in this exciting field. Funny, entertaining, and informative, "Welcome to BioTech Nation" is a unique, inside look at biotechnology today ... and a glimpse at what could be in store for us tomorrow."@en ;
