Is Genetics the Ultimate Puppet Master?
John Timmer, Ars Technica
The afternoon sessions at the Nobel Week Dialogue covered a lot of ground, which was inevitable if you put six extremely smart people on the stage, give them a topic, and set them loose. Although there's no way to summarize the full conversation, it's possible to pull out some important themes that the speakers returned to. I'll attempt to do that for the discussion on genetics and the environment.
