Beschreibung

There's enough DNA in a single cell to stretch six feet tall, and enough DNA in our bodies to stretch almost to the moon. Within this DNA are fascinating stories that hold the secrets to historical mysteries about humans, and tell of our peculiar rise on earth.There are genes to explain crazy cat ladies, and a love of reckless activities, genes that could allow someone to survive nuclear bombs, and cause the untimely end of explorers in the Arctic. Genes explain everything about us-everything from Vlad the Impaler's pale skin to JFK's bronze.
