In 2002 he co-authored with Georgina Ferry The Common Thread, an account of the science, politics and ethics of the human genome project. John Sulston chaired a working group of The Royal Society which, in April 2012, released its final report, People and the Planet a major study investigating the links between global population and consumption.
