After Dolly : the promise and perils of human cloning by Ian Wilmut( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A timely investigation into the ethics, history, and potential of human cloning from Professor Ian Wilmut, who shocked scientists, ethicists, and the public in 1997 when his team unveiled Dolly - that very special sheep who was cloned from a mammary cell. With award-winning science journalist Roger Highfield, Wilmut explains how Dolly launched a medical revolution in which cloning is now used to make stem cells that promise effective treatments for many major illnesses. Dolly's birth also unleashed an avalanche of speculation about the eventuality of cloning babies, which Wilmut strongly opposes. However, he does believe that scientists should one day be allowed to combine the cloning of human embryos with genetic modification to free families from serious hereditary disease. In effect, he is proposing the creation of genetically altered humans

Supercooperadores by M. A Nowak( Book )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martin A. Nowak es uno de los principales expertos en evolución y cuenta con el reconocimiento de la comunidad científica mundial. Nowack apela directamente al lector, le hace plantearse su posición ante diferentes dilemas. Este libro prueba que todo proceso evolutivo (del ADN a las sociedades humanas) nace de la cooperación, y explica cómo lograr con ella estrategias ganadoras. ¿Por qué la confianza es rentable? ¿Cómo se genera? ¿Pueden lograrse beneficios gracias al castigo? ¿Es éste de verdad útil, o resulta del todo estúpido? Lo cierto es que quienes obtienen mayores beneficios rara vez lo aplican, y prefieren promover la cooperación. En los últimos años este tema ha suscitado un enorme interés, pues puede ayudar a explicar la evolución humana desde la aparición de las primeras células, tema en que el profesor Martin A. Nowak, es una autoridad. --
