The Music of Life

Biology Beyond Genes

Denis Noble

  • Tackles the big issue of how biologists should seek to understand life itself
  • This short, personal, and lyrical book uses the metaphor of music to present a "systems biology" view of life
  • Urges a change in the way we think about life--can be considered today's equivalent to Erwin Schrodinger's classic essay "What is Life?"
  • With a foreword by the Nobel laureate and "father" of systems biology, Sydney Brenner
