Summary

Between 1900 and 1910, genetics emerged as the dominant theory of inheritance, sparking a quest to understand the nature of the gene and ultimately leading to the identification of DNA (originally considered "uninteresting") as the carrier of the genetic code.

Nice Little Overview

Where does Genetics - From Mendel to Molecules rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Pretty low, but at around 30 minutes, that's no problem really. Purchased this on a whim for £0.57. Nothing I didn't know but was a decent overview.

Who was your favorite character and why?

---

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The lecturer seemed passionate, however stuttered a little more than I'd like

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes
