She Has Her Mother's Laugh presents a profoundly original perspective on what we pass along from generation to generation, Tôi rất hài lòng.!. Charles Darwin played a crucial part in turning heredity into a scientific question, and yet he failed spectacularly to answer it, Tôi rất hài lòng.!. The birth of genetics in the early 1900s seemed to do precisely that, Tôi rất hài lòng.!. Gradually, people translated their old notions about heredity into a language of genes, Tôi rất hài lòng.!. As the technology for studying genes became cheaper, millions of people ordered genetic tests to link themselves to missing parents, to distant ancestors, to ethnic identities , Tôi rất hài lòng.!. , Tôi rất hài lòng.!. .
But, Zimmer argues, heredity isn't just about genes that pass from parent to child, Tôi rất hài lòng.!. Heredity continues within our own bodies, as a single cell gives rise to trillions of cells that make up our bodies, Tôi rất hài lòng.!. We say we inherit genes from our ancestors - using a word that once referred to kingdoms and estates - but we inherit other things that matter as much or more to our lives, from microbes to technologies we use to make life more comfortable, Tôi rất hài lòng.!. We need a new definition of what heredity is and, through Carl Zimmer's lucid exposition and storytelling, this resounding tour de force delivers it.
Weaving together historical and current scientific research, his own experience with his two daughters, and the kind of original reporting expected of one of the world's best science journalists, Zimmer ultimately unpacks urgent bioethical quandaries arising from new biomedical technologies, but also long-standing presumptions about who we really are and what we can pass on to future generations.
