Some of the most profound secrets about what it means to be human are now being revealed, thanks to the amazing tools of biotechnology. The Human Genome Project, completed in 2003, opened the book on the genetic instructions that go into making a human. Now other species are being studied at the same level of detail, providing astonishing insights into the whole range of life on Earth.

Armed with these and other findings, scientists are beginning to address age-old mysteries, including these:

What is the difference between living organisms and nonliving things?
How does DNA instruct a single-cell embryo to create a body with a brain that produces a self-conscious mind?
What makes us human? Our minds, genes, appearance, or something else?
Is the human species at the end of an evolutionary line, or will it evolve into something entirely different?
In 24 thought-provoking lectures designed for nonscientists, The Science of Self explores these and many other questions in today's exciting field of genomics, the study of the vast storehouse of information contained within chromosomes.
