Matiana González Silva analyses scientific communication in the book ‘Genes de papel’


Genes de papel investigates how daily newspaper El Pais portrayed and presented human genetics to the public over thirty crucial years, during which Spain went through an intense transformation following forty years of dictatorship. Human genetics itself also underwent a transformation, turning from a secondary, fringe science to the focal point of biology, attracting millions in investments, and generating heated controversy.

The book is the work of Matiana González Silva, with a PhD in History of Science, and Master in Scientific, Medical and Environmental Communication from UPF-IDEC. The book belongs to a collection on Scientific Studies, from the CSIC (State Board of Scientific Research).
