Epigenetics: The Code Isn't The Object
Here's an excellent background article on epigenetics, especially good for getting up to speed if you haven't had the opportunity to think about what gene transcription must really be like down on a molecular level.
This also fits in well with some of the obituaries that I and others have written for the turn-of-the-millennium genomics frenzy. There is, in short, an awful lot more to things than just the raw genetic code. And as time goes on, the whole the-code-is-destiny attitude that was so pervasive ten years ago (the air hasn't completely cleared yet) is looking more and more mistaken.
