Communicating Science contains 47 articles about scientific subjects by 23 new writers from Science and Writing, an upper-level course in the Professional Writing and Communication Program at the University of Toronto at Mississauga, writers who bridge the gap between the culture of science and the wider culture of educated readers.
This collection offers models of lucid, engaging, research-based writing, including articles about agricultural biotechnology, cloning, DNA forensics and Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome.
