Product description

Review

The focus of these three essays is the role of language and technology in the progress of genetic science. Drawing on a broad spectrum of theoretical work, Keller shows how scientists often operate from preconceived notions in seeking evidence; how it may be possible to reconcile the stability of genetic memory with the seemingly contrary law of increasing entropy; and why terminology introduced by the computer revolution influences recent discoveries in genetic research.--Science News

Synopsis

This text continues the author's study of how "scientific technique is both contributor to and product of discourse". It focuses on gender, and in particular, analyzes how the metaphors of information and communication technology affect biological research, especially in the field of genetics.
