Structural biologist Gregory Petsko has contributed a thought-provoking and entertaining monthly column to the scientific journal Genome Biology every month since its launch in 2000. To mark the 10th Anniversary of Genome Biology this book brings together 10 years of Petsko's columns.
"An addictive series of science OP-ED commentaries... using current issues to illuminate issues important in the profession and in the relationship of science to society"
"If only the people who ran our nations had the Petsko combination of wit and sense..."
Sir David Baulcombe
"Petsko can always be counted on to leave me with a smile while offering a fresh perspective on issues facing the genome biologist, be they trends in genomics research, scientific interaction in the age of social networking, science policy in our politicized era, or life science funding"
Marc S. Halfon
"As no other, Petsko knows how to place modern biology into the larger
picture of today's society. A welcome and often brilliant view."
