Summary
"Contemporary scientific research is perched on a paradox: scientists produce research which is freely shared with all, but private companies can come in and make a killing with it. Once the human genome-- the unbelievably complex structure of human DNA-- was mapped, this milestone could enable mankind to find cures to diseases like cancer and Alzheimer's. The National Institute of Health was determined to map the genome and share the results. But when biologist Craig Venter formed a private company to map the genome first and profit from it, a race was on. Suddenly the halls of science were vibrating with nerve-jangling excitement. It was a bitter race, and a personal one, but no matter who won, the frontiers of science would forever be expanded" -- container
