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.
