Editorial Review:

Product Description:
The Stuff of Life gives readers a complete introduction to the history of genetics that's as easy to understand as it is entertaining to read. Review:
Let’s face it: From adenines to zygotes, from cytokinesis to parthenogenesis, even the basics of genetics can sound utterly alien. So who better than an alien to explain it all? Enter Bloort 183, a scientist from an asexual alien race threatened by disease, who's been charged with researching the fundamentals of human DNA and evolution and laying it all out in clear, simple language so that even his slow-to-grasp-the-point leader can get it. In the hands of the award-winning writer Mark Schultz, Bloort's explanations give even the most science-phobic reader a complete introduction to the history and science of genetics.

The Stuff of Life Revealed

In the panels below, Bloort teaches his fellow alien about DNA.
