Automated DNA sequencing and analysis by Mark D Adams( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A timely book for DNA researchers, Automated DNA Sequencing and Analysis reviews and assesses the state of the art of automated DNA sequence analysis-from the construction of clone libraries to the developmentof laboratory and community databases. It presents the methodologies and strategies of automated DNA sequence analysis in a way that allows them to be compared and contrasted. By taking a broad view of the process of automated sequence analysis, the present volume bridges the gap between the protocols supplied with instrument and reaction kits and the finalized data presented in the research literature. It will be an invaluable aid to both small laboratories that are interested in taking maximum advantageof automated sequence resources and to groups pursuing large-scale cDNA and genomic sequencing projects. * The field of automation in DAN sequencing and analysis is rapidly moving. Hovever, as the technology becomes commonplace, those applying the techniques involved to their research fields need a text which both expands on the protocols supplied by manufacturers with their instruments and explains how to utilise the data produced. This book fulfils those needs, reviews the history of the art and provides pointers to future development

Interview with Craig Venter( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science author and broadcaster Richard Corfield travels to Valencia in Spain to interview Craig Venter, recognised as one of the leading scientists of the 21st century for his visionary work in genetic research. In 1998 Craig Venter and his private sector company succeeded in sequencing the human genome using some novel techniques coupled with sophisticated computers. Today this controversial scientist argues that CO2 in the atmosphere is the biggest problem facing our planet. He suggests that we are now in the century of biology and that synthetic chromosomes could be the new tool set used by scientists in the future; replacing the entire petrochemical industry with new biological technologies that will create new form of sustainable energy

A life decoded : my genome, my life by J. Craig Venter( Book )

25 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of the man who achieved one of the greatest feats of our era--the mapping of the human genome. After nearly flunking out of high school, Venter went to Vietnam, where the life and death struggles he encountered as a medic piqued his interest in science and medicine. In 1984 he joined the National Institutes of Health, introduced novel techniques for rapid gene discovery, and left in 1991 to form his own nonprofit genomics research center, where he sequenced the first genome in history in 1995. In 1998 he announced that he would successfully sequence the human genome years sooner, and for far less money, than the government-sponsored Human Genome Project would--a prediction he kept in 2001. The tale involves as much politics (personal and political) as science. He also describes the other startling projects he has conducted since.--From publisher description
Synthetic biology : tools for engineering biological systems( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Synthetic biology involves the rational design and construction of biological components and systems - from genetic elements and metabolic pathways to entirely new organisms. Progress in this field has been rapid, and it promises to significantly expand our capabilities in biotechnology, medicine, and agriculture. Written and edited by experts in the field, this collection from Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Biology examines the tools and techniques employed by synthetic biologists, how these may be used to develop new drugs, diagnostic approaches, food sources, and clean energy, and what the field of synthetic biology has taught us about natural living systems. The contributors discuss advances in DNA synthesis and assembly, genome editing (e.g., CRSPR-Cas9), and artificial genetic systems. Progress in designing complex genetic switches and circuits, expanding the genetic code, modifying cellular organization, producing proteins using cell-free systems, and developing biodesign automation tools is also covered. The authors also explore ways to produce new organisms and products that have particular attributes - for example, microbial "molecular factories," synthetic organs and tissues, and plants with novel traits. This volume is an essential resource for molecular, cell, and systems biologists who seek to engineer living systems for human benefit. -- from back cover
Life at the speed of light : from the double helix to the dawn of digital life by J. Craig Venter( Recording )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The science of synthetic genomics will have a profound impact on human existence, including chemical and energy generation, health, clean water and food production, environmental control, and possibly even evolution. Venter presents a fascinating and authoritative study of this emerging field from the inside, detailing its origins, current challenges and controversies, and projected effects on human life
Annotation of the Celera human genome assembly( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

DNA( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1990, a massive enterprise was launched to map the individual genes in the human genome. Known as the Human Genome Project, it soon turned into a race and a feud. This program tracks the progress of the endeavor, detailing the scientific innovations that led to its completion, as well as its political and economic impact. Among those who discuss the project are initial rivals Francis Collins and J. Craig Venter; Dr. John Sulston; Sir Alex Jeffreys, the discoverer of DNA fingerprinting; Nobel Laureates Fred Sanger and Jim Watson; and former President Bill Clinton
