I'm a total Biology nerd, so of course when this title was announced the nerd in me did a little happy dance~!
"The Genome Odyssey" is a very inspiring novel that goes into greater depth the inspiring stories that have come to be thanks to the technology of human genome sequencing. Many chapters / stories go into depth of real people with real problems. Unknown illnesses, strange behaviors, unknown causes of sudden death, autoimmune issues... these are just a few of many incredible stories that science has helped shed light on, helping so many people!
Side note: as one of the more recent stories or "cases" of which the greater good of DNA sequencing has been able to assist us, we have the COVID-19 vaccine. This is essentially a sequenced vaccine! This is just one of MANY amazing results that has come from the capability to sequence DNA.
