Giants of Genetics focusses less on the facts and more on the process of discovery in molecular genetics. In particular it tries to answer the following questions:
• Who were the major innovators?  How did they get to their position?  Who were their lesser known colleagues and collaborators?  Who were their major adversaries?  What were the great advances they discovered and how did they come to make them?  Did they fully understand the implications of their findings? Did they get the credit they deserved in their lifetimes? What was the intellectual climate like in their time?  What obstacles did they have to overcome?  This book grew out of the author's experiences teaching both precollege and senior citizen students.
