Conversations in Genetics is a collection of videotaped conversations with geneticists who have made major contributions to the conceptual foundations of modern genetics. These presentations reflect the thoughts and feelings of accomplished researchers as they recall their research achievements and describe the paths they took during various phases of their lives. They provide a rich resource for anyone interested in the history of genetics and the evolution of scientific ideas.

Each volume of Conversations is comprised of five DVDs. They can be purchased individually or as a set of five.

review: "Friedberg provides a real inspiration by recounting some of the rich experiences that the scientific life can offer. We are treated to descriptions of sudden flashes of insight over a dram of whisky at a conference in the Scottish highlands, pivotal blackboard discussions with students, and colleagues taking Sunday afternoon walks while planning experiments and searching for fossils….

For those currently investigating DNA repair, this fluent account is essential reading, and would also be a fine complement to courses on the history of molecular biology."
