The New York Times Ingfei Chen looks at Nick Patterson's evolution from unscrambling clandestine communications as a cryptographer at the British Government Communications Headquarters to breaking the toughest code of all -- the human genome -- as a computional biologist.

Patterson is part of a team at the Broad Institute that found patterns in DNA suggesting "that millions of years after an initial evolutionary split between human ancestors and chimp ancestors, the two lineages might have interbred again before diverging for good."

Ooh, Casey Luskin won't like that.
