Herding Hemingway's Cats.... understanding how our genes work, Author is Kat Arney. here is a book recommendation for anyone interested in what is being studied and learned about the genome, DNA, RNA, Micro RNA, transcription factors, etc. I do not have a background in biology, but I managed to be able to pretty much understand most of the book. it is detailed and complex, as is the subject. after reading this book and a few others it's become obvious to me that we have been woefully naïve about the genome and it is infinitely more complex than one could ever guess. as far as this forum is concerned, the book never mentions the subject of "methylation". she does discuss in one chapter quite a bit about "DNA methylation". she only mentions "snps" once in passing, probably because one amino acid change to one "snp" can be such a insignificant and minor change in the vast majority of cases... it's a 2016 book, so it's pretty up-to-date. anybody else read it???
