Eric Lander in the News

Eric Lander, the mathematician turned genomicist, is the subject of an article in today’s New York Times. Dr. Lander’s actions — and those of the article’s author — in the “DNA Wars” of the early 1990s are noted in The Double Helix and the Law of Evidence.  Understandably for a panegyric, the Times article leaves these matters in the dustbin of history.
