The human genome is the key to what makes us human. Composed of the many different genes found in our cells, it designs our possibilities and limitations as members of the species. The ultimate goal of the pioneering project outlined in this book is to map our genome in detail - an achievement that will revolutionize our understanding of human development and the expression of both our normal traits and our abnormal characteristics, such as disease. The Code of Codes is a collective exploration of the substance and possible consequences of this project in relation to ethics, law and society as well as to science technology, and medicine.
