"Q:...Can the public be convinced that the Human Genome Project is that important?
Watson: There are really two basic forms of diseases that human beings suffer. One is infectious disease, and the other is genetic disease--a disease which results from imperfections in our genetic instruction. Working out the genetic instructions for human existence will make it much easier for us to understand the nature of all these genetic diseases."
Fascinating content from one of the founders of the Human Genome Project. In excellent condition.
