Although the human genome exists apart from society, knowledge about it is produced through socially created language and interactions. Genomicists' thinking is informed by their inability to escape the wake of the "race" concept. The book reveals that genomicists' preoccupation with race-regardless of good or ill intent-contributes to its perception as a category of differences that is scientifically rigorous.
