An official guide to the crazy science of Orphan Black

Delve deeper into the scientific terms and theories at the core of the Peabody-winning, cult favourite show. With exclusive insights from the show's co-creator Graeme Manson and science consultant Cosima Herter, The Science of Orphan Black takes you behind the closed doors of the Dyad Institute and inside Neolution. Authors Casey Griffin and Nina Nesseth decode the mysteries of Orphan Black - from the history of cloning, epigenetics, synthetic biology, chimerism, the real diseases on which the clone disease is based, and the transhumanist philosophies of Neolution, to what exactly happens when a projectile pencil is shot through a person's eye and into their brain.

Casey Griffin is a graduate student pursuing her Ph.D. in developmental and stem-cell biology at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. She's been a fan of Orphan Black and avid member of the Clone Club since 2011. When she isn't loudly fan-girling over the show and being an all-around sci-fi and comic book nerd, she can...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super interesting book Orphan Black is one of my favourite TV shows, and I'm bummed that it's over. I picked up The Science of Orphan Black at FanExpo this summer, and had the opportunity to talk a bit with one of the authors. So I was super excited to dive into this book - and I wasn't disappointed. This book is really well thought out and researched, and super easy to read without a science background. It's packed full of fascinating nuggets about the show, and makes you realize just how brilliant this show really was. I'm now in the mood to re-watch, now that I'm aware of all these extra tidbits. If you're a fan of the show, I highly recommend giving The Science of Orphan Black a read.
