1 ACKERMAN, JENNIFER. Chance In The House Of Fate: A Natural History Of Heredity.
Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston: 2001. 0618082875 / 9780618082872 First Printing. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Like New. 
In the last few years, a startling new message has emerged about our biology. Scientists have discovered that all living things are more deeply alike than we ever imagined. Oganisms from yeast to humans are run by similar genes and proteins, which have passed down nearly intact for hundreds of millions of years. At the most fundamental level, humans are genetically linked to every part of the natural world. The award-winning science writer Jennifer Ackerman brings these astonishing discoveries together for the first time, weaving a mesmerizing story of heredity that is only now being understood. "Chance in the House of Fate is about the biggest biology story of the last ten years: the discovery of remarkable family resemblances that unit every living thing in the tre of life, at the level of our genes. It's a beautiful discovery that has accumulated bit by bit in thousands of laboratories all over the world. Jennifer Ackerman has risen to the occasion with a beautiful meditation on our likenesses, like a poet musing in the small hours after a family reunion." - Honathan Weiner, author of The Beak of the Finch
