Books, Manuscripts
Your genome defines you at the most profound level. That same genome is present in every one of the approximately 100,000 billion cells that make you who you are as an individual member of the human species. An important ingredient of the genome, and its essential nature, is memory - the memory of the entirety of every individual human's genetic inheritance. We know that this wonder chemical we call DNA works like a code. But how could any code recall the complex instructions that go into the making of cells and tissues and organs, and once made, allow them to function as a co-ordinated whole that comprises the human being? Frank Ryan leads us into a series of remarkable revelations about our human history, into the very distant past of our ancestor's lives and their prehistoric exploration of our beautiful planet, revealing the true secrets to the human genome which makes each of us who we are.
