„Der Mensch ist mehr als die Summe seiner Gene“. Wurde dieser Satz im Jahr 2002 kurz vor Abschluss des Humanen Genomprojekts (HGP) noch unter ethischen und moralphilosophischen Gesichtspunkten diskutiert, wurde danach schnell klar, dass er auch eine tiefergreifende wissenschaftliche Bedeutung für die gesamte Biologie hat als vorher angenommen.
