Fly: The Unsung Hero of Twentieth-Century Science
HarperCollins, 2002/10/08 - 224 ページ
A short biography of a creature that changed science.
There's a buzz in the air, the sound of a billion wings vibrating to the tune of scientific success. For generations, the fruit fly has been defining biology's major landmarks. From genetics to development, behavior to aging, and evolution to the origin of the species, it has been a key and, outside academic circles, an unaccredited player in some of the twentieth century's greatest biological discoveries. In fact, everything from gene therapy to cloning and the Human Genome Project is built on the foundation of fruit fly research.
This witty, irreverent biography of the fruit fly provides a broad introduction to biology as well as a glimpse into how one short life has informed scientific views on such things as fundamentals of heredity, battle of the sexes, and memory.

Review: Fly: The Unsung Hero of Twentieth-Century Scienceユーザー レビュー - Carissa - Goodreads
Well, I read it through to the second chapter then made the decision to stop reading it. It really tries to be interesting, but I think it would be better enjoyed by a science major. The part about creating mutant flies was nifty, though. レビュー全文を読む
