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

40 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 2,991 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( )

50 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 2,099 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

40 editions published between 1966 and 2018 in English and German and held by 579 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 )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 339 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

Biología molecular del gen by James D Watson( Book )

37 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La séptima edición de Biología molecular del gen, que cumple cincuenta años en el mercado y que aparece una década después de haberse completado el proyecto genoma humano, celebra el marco intelectual central de la biología molecular y los extraordinarios conocimientos mecanicistas, biológicos y evolutivos que se lograron en todo este tiempo. Esta nueva edición contiene novedades importantes ya que además de la actualización de los contenidos, se han realizado cambios en la organización, añadido capítulos y sumado nuevos temas dentro de los ya existentes. Entre sus características sobresalientes se encuentran: " Una nueva parte sobre la estructura y el estudio de las principales macromoléculas: el DNA, el RNA y las proteínas." Un capítulo nuevo sobre el origen y la evolución inicial de la vida que explica como las técnicas de biología molecular y bioquímica permiten considerar -e incluso reconstruir- la forma en que podría haberse originado la vida, e introduce la perspectiva de crear vida en un tubo de ensayo (biología sintética)." Las novedades sobre muchos aspectos de la regulación génica, como la percepción de quórum en las poblaciones bacterianas, el sistema de defensa CRISPR en las bacterías y los piRNA en los animales, la función de Polycomb, y la descripción sobre otros de los denominados mecanismos "epigenéticos" de regulación génica en los eucariontes superiores." Los recientes experimentos y métodos de experimentación que reflejan los últimos avances y las aplicaciones que amplían los horizontes de la investigación; por ejemplo, cómo el código genético puede expandirse para generar proteínas nuevas, la creación de un genoma sintético y cómo se diseñan nuevos fármacos antibacterianos." Los cuestionarios al final de los capítulos, que incluyen preguntas de respuestas breves y de análisis de datos, que refuerzan el aprendizaje." El sitio web complementario para estudiantes y docentes, que contiene valiosos materiales para el aprendizaje y la enseñanza, como archivos de tutoriales y animaciones, preguntas de razonamiento y para evaluación en clase, respuestas a las preguntas de los capítulos, y las figuras y los cuadros del libro. Una obra excelente que refleja los progresos espectaculares de esta apasionante disciplina, pero que conserva su filosofía original: describir de manera clara y sencilla qué son los genes y cómo funcionan
La double hélice : compte rendu personnel de la découverte de la structure de l'ADN by James D Watson( Book )

11 editions published between 1968 and 1999 in French and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En 1953, Crick, Watson et Wilkins découvraient la structure en " double hélice " de l'ADN, l'acide désoxyribonucléique, la substance qui contient tout le code de l'hérédité. Cette découverte, couronnée parle prix Nobel en 1962, déclencha le développement impétueux de la biologie moléculaire. La double hélice est le récit étonnant de cette découverte. Pour la première fois, le processus de la création scientifique est raconté tel qu'il a été vécu par un chercheur. Augmenté de nombreux documents et présenté par le professeur Etienne Baulieu, voici un grand classique de la littérature scientifique
