Play Synopsis: Sequencing of the human genome was a public race – and a personal war! Strong personalities, emerging technology and differing views on public vs. private DNA ownership fueled the race to obtain the first human DNA sequence. Covering the story was a young journalist worried about her own destiny with breast cancer and the information that her genome sequence would uncover.
Proceeds support NWABR programs.
