Remaking Eden : cloning and beyond in a brave new world by Lee M Silver( Book )

24 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Remaking Eden is a fascinating exploration of the future of reprogenetic technologies - a cautiously optimistic look at the scientific advances that will allow us to engineer life in ways that were unimaginable just a few short years ago. Indeed, in ways that go far beyond cloning, and that are at once more thrilling and more frightening."--BOOK JACKET. "Could a woman give birth to her identical twin sister? Could a child have two genetic mothers? Could a man become pregnant? Could parents choose not only the physical characteristics of their children-to-be, but personalities and talents as well? Will genetic enhancement ultimately change the very nature of our species? The answers will excite some and alarm others. Silver demystifies the science involved in all these possibilities, calmly and efficiently dismantling our preconceptions and misconceptions. Throughout, he examines the profound ethical questions raised by these new technologies. Yet he reminds us that the desire both to have children and to provide them with all possible advantages in life is a uniquely powerful force - a force, he suggests, that will overcome all political and societal attempts to curb the use of reprogenetics."--Jacket

Predictor : genetic screening( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of a four-part series presenting research and breakthroughs in the field of human genetics. This segment looks at the extent to which genes determine human behavior and destiny. A woman discovers that a single letter change in the genome has been responsible for her family's generations-old "curse" of deformed hands. Dr. Hugh Montgomery of University College Hospital, London, screens the DNA of army recruits for the ACE or endurance gene which may affect their longevity as well as their basic training. Dr. Dean Hammer of the National Institutes of Health explains his search for a thrill-seeker gene, D4DR. Attorney Daniel Summer argues for leniency for his death-row client because his DNA predisposed him to a life of crime. Professor Lee Silver of Princeton University and Nobel Laureate Sir Paul Nurse also provide commentary
The science of self( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What makes us human? Advances in biotechnology are revolutionizing our ability to answer this age-old question. This course provides a foundation for understanding how life works at the level of genes and molecules that interact in complex networks to drive human development, evolution, and behavior. We begin with an overview of the core principles of scientific analysis and a historical survey of the ways in which science has been used to dissect the meanings of "life" and "human being." We then move from Mendel's concept of the gene to an in-depth look at DNA in the modern age of biotechnology, with tools for reading all 3 billion base pairs of sequence in the human genome"--Cover page [4], guidebook

Challenging nature : science in a spiritual world by Lee M Silver( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Biotechnology is the oldest and most widespread of inventions, providing sustenance for humankind since the beginning of civilization. Until recently, however, its tools were crude and its implementation was opaque. Today new understanding in the life sciences brings both precision and transparency to the process. Modern inventions could alleviate human suffering, feed the world, and, at the same time, stem the tide of earth's ecological degradation. Yet ironically, biotechnology becomes evermore contentious. On the left, New Age secularists rail against genetically modified crops. On the right, religious Americans want embryo stem-cell research to be a felony. While they share seemingly little beyond mutual contempt, Silver argues that both political camps are driven - consciously or subconsciously - by a fundamental fear of violating a higher spiritual authority, imagined either as the creator God of the Bible, who rules from above, or a vague Mother Nature goddess here on earth." "In Challenging Nature, Silver offers a provocative look at the collision of science, religion, pseudoscience, and politics. A hands-on scientist who has actually manipulated genes, he leaves the laboratory, traveling the globe in what he calls "one scientist's journey from a cloistered community, in which life is assumed to be combinations of complex molecules and information flow between them, to a world of humanity dominated by soul and spirits, and to the intense chaos of Mother Nature at large." The result is a book that could provide a wake-up call for the West, where the economic ramifications of pseudoscience may be enormous: a future in which Asia becomes dominant in biotechnological advances."--BOOK JACKET
