Praise for Digital Code of Life

"The man who wrote the best history yet of the open–source movement in Rebel Code gives us an equally lucid and penetrating look at bioinformatics. Well done!"
Eric S. Raymond
Author of The Cathedral and the Bazaar

"This book provides a riveting account of the history of bioinformatics and of the manner in which bioinformatics has contributed to advancing our knowledge of the human genome. Glyn Moody has chronicled through reviews of key scientific papers and through interviews with leading scientists, the major developments in the field of genomics in the past half century, from the discovery of the double helix to the emergence of proteomics, pointing to their relevance to science, medicine, and industry and to the critical contributions of bioinformatics."
Sam Hanash, University of Michigan
President of The Human Proteome Organisation
