The Cartoon Guide To Genetics

The Cartoon Guide To GeneticsFeatured in a UC Berkeley Library exhibit:

San Francisco artist Larry Gonick and UC Davis microbiologist Mark Wheelis use their artistic abilitiy and scientific knowledge to present a humorous look at genetics for a lay audience. Gonick has generously loaned The Bancroft Library the original art work for The Cartoon Guide to Genetics (1991).

Presented here are sections entitled “The Spiral Staircase” and “Genetic Engineering,” specifically referencing the work of Watson and Crick on the DNA double helix, and Cohen and Boyer on recombinant DNA.
