Scary stuff:

This week John Sulston is being awarded the Nobel Prize, with Sydney Brenner and H Robert Horvitz, for discoveries about the genetic regulation of organ development and programmed cell death. Sulston is also noted for his pioneering work on the human genome.

In our December issue he writes about his battle to make the entire sequence of the genome public despite all the commercial attemps to patent it.
