Summary
"What Makes You You? is a mind-blowing introduction to the building blocks of life--DNA! Amazing 3D-style illustrations and diagrams help explain what it is, how it works, and what we can do with it. Breaking down complex scientific concepts and processes into bite-sized chunks, this fascinating book explains everything from the basics of evolution to the incredible achievements of modern-day genetic research--and what's in store for the future!"--
