DNA : the secret of life by James D Watson( Book )

33 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 3,279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fifty years ago, James D. Watson, then just twenty-four, helped launch the greatest ongoing scientific quest of our time. Now, with unique authority and sweeping vision, he gives us the first full account of the genetic revolution - from Mendel's garden to the double helix to the sequencing of the human genome and beyond." "But genetics as we recognize it today - with its capacity, both thrilling and sobering, to manipulate the very essence of living things - came into being only with the rise of molecular investigations culminating in the breakthrough discovery of the structure of DNA, for which Watson shared a Nobel prize in 1962. In the DNA molecule's graceful curves was the key to a whole new science." "Watson provides the general reader with clear explanations of molecular processes and emerging technologies. He shows us how DNA continues to alter our understanding of human origins, and of our identities as groups and as individuals. And with the insight of one who has remained close to every advance in research since the double helix, he reveals how genetics has unleashed a wealth of possibilities to alter the human condition - from genetically modified food to genetically modified babies - and transformed itself from a domain of pure research into one of big business as well. It is a sometimes topsy-turvy world full of great minds and great egos, driven by ambitions to improve the human condition as well as to improve investment portfolios, a world vividly captured in these pages."--Jacket

A passion for DNA : genes, genomes, and society by James D Watson( Book )

26 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A principal architect and visionary of the new biology, a Nobel Prize-winner at 34 and best-selling author at 40 (The Double Helix), James D. Watson had the authority, flair, and courage to take an early and prominent role as commentator on the march of DNA science and its implications for society. In essays for publications large and small, and in lectures around the world, he delivered what were, in effect, dispatches from the front lines of the revolution. Outspoken and sparkling with ideas and opinions, a selection of them is collected for the first time in this volume. Their resonance with today's headlines is striking

Phage and the origins of molecular biology : [essays] by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory of Quantitative Biology( Book )

36 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays, written by pioneers in the field of molecular biology, was first published in 1966 as a 60th birthday tribute to Max Delbruck. A formative influence on many of today's leading scientists, the book was seen not just as a valuable historical record but also as a remarkable portrait of a small, pioneering, close-knit scientific community that transcended age, nationality, and academic discipline to focus intensely on the most important questions in biology. This centennial edition reflects a more personal side of Delbruck, and includes a series of photographs from his family's albums."--Jacket
The indelible stamp : the evolution of an idea by Charles Darwin( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time in one volume, here are four of the most influential works of Charles Darwin, reprinted in their entirety, each illuminated by commentary from eminent scientist James D. Watson. Included are On the Origin of Species, arguably the most important scientific work of the nineteenth century; Voyage of the Beagle, a captivating travelogue richly stocked with observations that helped guide the young Darwin through his evolutionary world view; The Descent of Man, which explored the origins of humans and their history; and The Expressions of Emotions in Man and Animals, which explored the origin and nature of the mind. With separate introductions for each of Darwin's books, Watson goes further to explain how the modern considerations underlying genome research would have been impossible without Darwin, bringing a contemporary relevance to these nineteenth century masterworks.--From publisher description

Nucleic acid research : future development by Kiyoshi Mizobuchi( Book )

5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nucleic Acid Research: Future Development reflects the exchange of ideas and information among the participants of """"The Future of Nucleic Acid Research"""" symposium held at Kyoto on December 1981. This publication aims to extend the ideas presented in the symposium and to provide facts that can answer various scientific questions, particularly, in molecular biology. The book is divided into five parts. It explains the structure of DNA and chromosome and the interaction of nucleic acids with proteins. It also discusses the gene organization of prokaryotes as well as the gene expressions i
TEDTalks : James Watson - The Double Helix and Today's DNA Mysteries( Visual )

James Watson and Francis Crick's 1953 discovery of DNA's double-helix structure paved the way for the astounding breakthroughs in genetics and medicine that marked the second half of the 20th century. How did they do it? Watson - a Nobel Laureate and former head of the Human Genome Project - opens TED2005 with the frank and funny story of how he and Crick hit upon the structure of DNA and then goes on to talk about "what makes me tick now."

The annotated and illustrated double helix by James D Watson( Book )

40 editions published between 1911 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the fiftieth anniversary of Watson and Crick receiving the Nobel Prize, a freshly annotated and illustrated edition of The Double Helix provides new insights into the personal relationships among James Watson, Frances Crick, Maurice Wilkins, Rosalind Franklin and a scientific revolution. In his 1968 memoir, The Double Helix, James Watson offered a thrilling drama of the race among scientists to identify the structure of DNA. Professors Alexander Gann and Jan Witkowski have built upon this narrative; juxtaposing Watsons' racy account with the commentary of other protagonists offering an enhanced perspective of the now legendary story. They have mined many sources: including a trove of newly discovered correspondence belonging to Francis Crick mislaid some fifty years earlier; excerpts from the papers of Maurice Wilkins, Linus Pauling, and Rosalind Franklin; and a chapter that had been dropped from the original. After half a century, the implications of the double helix keep rippling outward; the tools of molecular biology have forever transformed the life sciences. The New Annotated and Illustrated Edition of The Double Helix adds a richness to the account of the momentous events that led the charge. The Double Helix is the best book I know about a scientific discovery. This new edition suffuses the whole with social history, fascinating documentation, photography, and cunning background research. The early fifties, the beginning of the modern age of molecular biology, spring to life. Ian McEwan, author of Atonement --
