Those interested in learning more about gene research and molecular biology might be interested.

Exons, Introns, and Talking genes: The science of the Human Genome Project by Christopher Wills ISBN 0-465-02168-9

>From the preface by the author:

" Please, If you only have a glancing acquaintance with genetics or none at all, please start at the beginning and follow patiently along. I have designed this book to introduce you step by step to the amazing world of molecules and genes, while doing my best not to bore readers who know a fair amount already. By the end you will be quite comfortable with such esoterica as gene mapping, RFLPs and introns."

The books opens with a scenario where a genetic neurosurgeon is trying to repair the damage to a crack addicted mothers infant.

It will warm your extropian hearts.
