28 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 1,680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A heady overview of the emerging discipline of synthetic biology and the wonders it can produce, from new drugs and vaccines to biofuels and resurrected woolly mammoths. In this authoritative, sometimes awe-inspiring book, geneticist Church and veteran science writer Regis team up to explore how scientists are now altering the nature of living organisms by modifying their genomes, or genetic makeup
Woolly : the true story of the quest to revive one of history's most iconic extinct creatures by Ben Mezrich( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 1,047 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the frozen tundra of Siberia to the cutting-edge genetics labs of Harvard University, a group of young scientists--under the guidance of Dr. George Church, the most brilliant geneticist of our time--is working to make the impossible happen. Their task? To bring the Woolly Mammoth, a creature that has been extinct for three thousand years, back into our world. How will they do it? By sequencing the DNA of a frozen Woolly Mammoth harvested from above the Arctic Circle, and then splicing elements of it into the DNA of a modern elephant. Through this process, they hope to turn the hybrid cells into a functional embryo and bring the extinct creatures to life in our modern world ..."--Jacket
Rise of the necrofauna : the science, ethics, and risks of de-extinction by Britt Wray( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What happens when you try to recreate a woolly mammoth--fascinating science, or conservation catastrophe? In Rise of the Necrofauna, Britt Wray takes us deep into the minds and labs of some of the world's most progressive thinkers to find out the truth about de-extinction. She introduces us to renowned futurists like Stewart Brand and scientists like George Church, who are harnessing the powers of CRISPR gene editing in the hopes of "reviving" extinct passenger pigeons, woolly mammoths, and heath hens. But we also hear from more cautionary voices, like those of researcher and award-winning author Beth Shapiro and environmental philosopher Thomas van Dooren. Through conversations with these and other thought leaders, Wray reminds us that de-extinction could bring just as many dangers as it does possibilities. What happens, for example, when we bring an "unextinct" creature back into the wild? How can we care for these strange animals and ensure their comfort and safety--not to mention our own and that of other creatures? By unpacking the many biological, technological, ethical, environmental, and legal questions raised by this fascinating new field, Wray offers a captivating look at the best and worst of resurrection science."--Jacket

Lynn Hershman Leeson : Anti-Bodies by Lynn Hershman-Leeson( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the center of the publication is Lynn Hershman Leeson's installation The Infinity Engine, modeled after a genetics laboratory. The artist demonstrates that the boudaries between natural and artificial life are dissolving at an increasingly rapid pace in the age of synthetic biology, and that today life itself can be artificially shaped. This includes DNA manipulation, artificial human organs manufactured via 3D-bioprinting, antibody research, and use of DNA as a biological storage medium, Leeson presents these achievements as works of art embedded in an inimitable aesthetic. Documenting these work cycles in photographs of the exhibition at at the HeK Basel, this volume also contains numerous essays that offer both a scientific context and insight into this trailblazing media artist's oeuvre and her current focus on technology"--Page 4 of cover

The switch : ignite your metabolism with intermittent fasting, protein cycling, and keto by James W Clement( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can you lose dramatic weight, reverse chronic conditions, and stay healthier longer? Flip the switch on your metabolism with intermittent fasting, protein restriction, and ketosis! Lose weight. Reverse Chronic Conditions. Live Healthier Longer. Within each of us is an ancient mechanism that eliminates toxic materials, initiates fat burning, and protects cells against stress. It's called autophagy, and when it's turned on, the complex operation can not only slow down the aging process, but can optimize biological function as a whole, helping to stave off all manner of disease'from diabetes to dementia'and affording us the healthy lifespan we never thought possible. So how can we activate this switch through diet' How frequently should we fast and for how long' Must we abstain from all foods or just specific macronutrients' What's the sweet spot between intermittent fasting, protein restriction, and ketogenic eating' Backed by a wealth of data, and with a practical program anyone can follow for lasting results, The Switch not only decodes the science of autophagy, but also teaches you how to control it and benefit from its profound impact
Hood by Luke Timmerman( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Hood did that rarest of things. He enabled scientists to see things they couldn't see before and do things they hadn't dreamed of doing. Scientists can now sequence complete human genomes in a day, setting in motion a revolution that is personalizing medicine. Hood, a son of the American West, was an unlikely candidate to transform biology. But with ferocious drive, he led a team at Caltech that developed the automated DNA sequencer, the tool that paved the way for the Human Genome Project. He captivated scientists with his almost religious fervor for the new biology enabled by the machines. Hood's brilliance, rebellion, enthusiasm, and ego earned him detractors as well as admirers. His management style, once described as "creative anarchy," alienated many. Some of his collaborators seethed, claiming he took too much credit. Fellow Caltech biologists charged that his empire building was out of control and ousted him as their chairman. A fraud in his lab made him consider, for a moment, quitting science. Wooed by money from Bill Gates, Hood started over at the University of Washington, creating the world's first Department of Molecular Biotechnology. Seven years later, his impatience for rules drove him to depart. He left at age sixty-one to start his own Institute for Systems Biology. Would he finally achieve the ultimate application of the genome project--personalized medicine?

Genomic Sequence Comparisons, 1987-2003 Final Report( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project was to develop new DNA sequencing and RNA and protein quantitation methods and related genome annotation tools. The project began in 1987 with the development of multiplex sequencing (published in Science in 1988), and one of the first automated sequencing methods. This lead to the first commercial genome sequence in 1994 and to the establishment of the main commercial participants (GTC then Agencourt) in the public DOE/NIH genome project. In collaboration with GTC we contributed to one of the first complete DOE genome sequences, in 1997, that of Methanobacterium thermoautotropicum, a species of great relevance to energy-rich gas production

Regenesis how synthetic biology will reinvent nature and ourselves by George M Church( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Harvard biologist and master inventor explores how new biotechnologies will enable us to bring species back from the dead, unlock vast supplies of renewable energy, and extend human life.In Regenesis, George Church and science writer Ed Regis explore the possibilities of the emerging field of synthetic biology. Synthetic biology, in which living organisms are selectively altered by modifying substantial portions of their genomes, allows for the creation of entirely new species of organisms. These technologies-far from the out-of-control nightmare depicted in science fiction-have the power to improve human and animal health, increase our intelligence, enhance our memory, and even extend our life span. A breathtaking look at the potential of this world-changing technology, Regenesis is nothing less than a guide to the future of life
