This is a book of real stories about the search for genomic spelling errors that have stark consequences -- infants who pass away mysteriously, siblings with misplaced organs, a family with several instances of vision loss, sisters whose hearts fail in the prime of their youth, a boy whose blood cant carry enough oxygen, a baby with cancer in the eye, a middle-aged patient battling cancer, and the authors own color blindness. The search in each case proves to be a detective quest that connects the world of medical practice with that of molecular biology, traversing the world of computer algorithms along the way.
