The Music of Life

Biology beyond the Genome

Denis Noble

  • Tackles how biologists should seek to understand life itself. There are no simple answers, but this book is likely both to enchant and provoke the reader.
  • This short, personal, and lyrical essay 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 an equivalent to Erwin Schrodinger's classic 1944 essay <i>'What is Life?' </i>, for the post-human genome project age.
