520 Carolyn's parents did not, after all, make genomics
history by synthesizing her genome in a lab. She has known
she is the "Human Hoax" ever since a high school genetics
exercise revealed she has trisomy X--a chromosomal
abnormality--yet no synthetically constructed genome would
have such clear traces of natural conception. Many years
later, as molecular biologist, she hopes her colleagues
never learn of her embarrassing origins. But when someone
ransacks her office and lab, she finds professional
embarrassment is the least of her worries. Someone
believes she has the results of her parents' last, secret
experiments, and is willing to kill to get them. But all
she has from her parents are their genes--can she find
what else they may have left her before somebody else
does? In a not-so-distant society, where corporations
wield as much power as nations and the line between
corporate employee and state authority is blurred, the
chase is on. Carolyn may have just too little time at hand
to unravel the mystery of her parents' final days and to
realize the deep consequences for the future of mankind.
This fast-paced novel is followed by an extensive science
chapter where the author provides a non-technical primer
on modern genetics and on the speculative biology behind
