"Over time the organism partly determines what happens to the genome"

In this broadcast on Voices from Oxford, Colin Mayer, Professor of Management Studies at the University of Oxford, challenges Denis Noble to explain what the book is about. The answers are surprising. Moreover, six years after publication of The Music of Life, no-one has responded to the deep questions it raises about the nature of biological science. Meanwhile, the evidence for the new view has rapidly grown (see the sourcebook). Moreover, the social implications of a view radically different from that which was predominant in the 20th century are very profound.
