The Music of Life: Biology beyond the Genome

Denis Noble, The Music of Life: Biology beyond the Genome
Oxford University Press | ISBN 0199295735 | 2006 | PDF | 1 MB | 177 pages

What is Life? Decades of research have resulted in the full mapping of the human genome - three billion pairs of code whose functions are only now being understood. The gene's eye view of life, advocated by evolutionary biology, sees living bodies as mere vehicles for the replication of the genetic codes. But for a physiologist, working with the living organism, the view is a very different one. Denis Noble is a world renowned physiologist, and sets out an alternative view to the question - one that becomes deeply significant in terms of the living, breathing organism. The genome is not life itself.
