In recent years, revolutionary developments in fossil dating and the spectacular entrance of genetic research into the origins debate have sent the anthropological establishment into an uproar.

Genome war : [how Craig Venter tried to capture the code of life and save the world] by James Shreeve( Recording )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contemporary scientific research is perched on a paradox: scientists produce research which is freely shared with all, but private companies can come in and make a killing with it. Once the human genome-- the unbelievably complex structure of human DNA-- was mapped, this milestone could enable mankind to find cures to diseases like cancer and Alzheimer's. The National Institute of Health was determined to map the genome and share the results. But when biologist Craig Venter formed a private company to map the genome first and profit from it, a race was on. Suddenly the halls of science were vibrating with nerve-jangling excitement. It was a bitter race, and a personal one, but no matter who won, the frontiers of science would forever be expanded"--Container

The last Neandertal( Visual )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some 150,000 years ago Europe and Western Asia were dominated by an extraordinary race of human beings who were tall, around 6 feet or so, with an immensely strong physical build and clearly intelligent, their brain was slightly larger than that of modern man. They were called the Neandertals. They had the strength, courage and the social organisation to survive and thrive even through the terrible ordeal of successive ice ages which carpeted Northern Europe. They were great survivors. Then Suddenly, around 35,000 years ago they disappeared. Wiped off the map. Extinct. Replaced in some strange and inexplicable way by our own direct ancestors, Modern Man, homo sapiens sapiens who went on to populate the entire world. The extraordinary disappearance of the Neandertals remains one of the great mysteries in the history of human evolution. This award winning documentary unravels that mystery and explores the latest scientific research to present, at last, a solution to the Neandertal
