So...I was thinking about starting to read some books to help with Uni applications etc :laugh:, so does anyone have any suggested reads. As far as I believe I enjoy the evolutionary side of Biology, however I am open to any suggestions :yep: Thanks!

Anything you’ve read already and liked?

Siddhartha Mukherjee’s biographies of cancer and the genome are both classics for a reason, but chunky! Nessie Carey’s The Epigenetics Revolution is pretty interesting and evolution-related. I’d also check out the Wellcome book prize shortlists for things that interest you.
