The Art of Genes
How Organisms Make ThemselvesBook - 1999
"Through a highly original synthesis of science and art, Enrico Coen vividly describes this revolution in our understanding of how plants and animals develop. Drawing on a wide range of material - from flowers growing petals instead of sex organs, and flies that develop an extra pair of wings, to works of art by Leonardo and Magritte - he explains the language and meaning of genes. He arrives at fresh and exciting insights into the nature of evolution, development, and human creativity."--Jacket.
