Book Summary:
This is the story of the sequencing of the fly genome told by one of the participants, Michael Ashburner. Written in a diary-like form, half the story is told in the numerous footnotes. A delightful, candid, irreverent, on-the-scene tale filled with eccentric personalities all focused on a single goal.

Also included are drawings by Lewis Miller of some of the principal characters
