New Book!

On September 24th My Beautiful Genome is published in Denmark by Gyldendal Publishers. This book is my very personal take on personal genomics. It chronicles my meetings and interviews with leading scientists and lays out the – somtimes disquieting – discoveries I make in my own genome. Want to have a sneak peek? Click here.

The book has so far been sold for publication in the US, the UK, Holland and Germany where it will be released during 2011.
