The second creation : Dolly and the age of biological control by Ian Wilmut( Book )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 1,753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The cloning of Dolly in 1996 from the cell of an adult sheep was a pivotal moment in history." "In this definitive account, the scientists who accomplished this stunning feat explain their hypotheses and experiments, their conclusions, and the implications of their work. Researchers have already incorporated into sheep the gene for human factor IX, a blood-clotting protein used to treat hemophilia. In the future, cultures of mammary cells may prove to be valuable donor material, and genetically modified animal organs may be transplanted into humans." "But what are the ethical issues raised by this pioneering research, and how are we to reconcile them with the enormous possibilities?"--Jacket
After Dolly : the uses and misuses of human cloning by Ian Wilmut( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scientist Ian Wilmut describes the process by which he and other researchers at Scotland's Roslin Institute cloned the first mammal, a sheep named Dolly, and makes a case for the medical uses of cloning
After Dolly : the promise and perils of human cloning by Ian Wilmut( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 110 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
Dolly : der Aufbruch ins biotechnische Zeitalter by Ian Wilmut( Book )

Stem cells : scientific facts and fiction by C. L Mummery( )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides the reader background information on stem cells in a clear and well-organized manner. It provides the non-stem cell expert with an understandable review of the history, current state of affairs, and facts and fiction of the promises of stem cells. It distinguishes itself from the multiplicity of websites on the subject of stem cells by being scientifically, politically and ethically neutral, explaining pros and cons for stem cells of every sort with the intention of reaching a wide readership ranging from advanced students and patient advocacy groups to clinicians, specialists and early phase medics in training. By providing the background scientific and social information, it provides readers with the information they require to form their own opinions on the use of stem cells on the basis of facts rather than hype

1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En 1996, I. Wilmut annonce le clonage d'une brebis adulte, nommée Dolly. Il revient en détail sur l'histoire extraordinaire de cette naissance et les recherches fondamentales qui l'entourent. Opposé à la fabrication d'êtres humains clonés, il explique pourquoi il faut poursuivre de manière éthique les recherches dans le domaine du clonage thérapeutique

Cloning for medicine : Scientific American article by Ian Wilmut( )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cloning can be a boon to medical science, even without ethically dubious attempts to duplicate humans. As the creator of Dolly the cloned sheep explains, the real benefits will come from the speedy production of genetically engineered animals useful for drug manufacture, transplants and basic research
The uses and misuses of human cloning by Ian Wilmut( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text provides a timely and important discussion of the potential value of cloning and of the ethical choices that this radical new technology has raised, including the issues surrounding the current status of stem-cell research
Principles of cloning by Jose B Cibelli( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Epigenetic Principles of Evolution is a postgenetic treatment of the problem of metazoan evolution. It presents a radically novel epigenetic theory of evolution describing epigenetic mechanisms of evolutionary changes as they arise in the process of individual development. In seven chapters of Part 1 (Epigenetic Basis of Metazoan Heredity, pp. 21-216) the author introduces the reader to the epigenetic system of heredity - a function of the integrated control system. Cabej describes the dominant role of the epigenetic system of heredity in the processes of reproductive functions (chapter 3), in gametogenesis and in the process of the deposition of parental cytoplasmic factors (=epigenetic information) in gametes (chapter 4). In chapter 5 the author shows how the epigenetic information deposited in gametes in the form of maternal cytoplasmic factors determines the early embryonic development from the zygote stage to the phylotypic stage. A detailed description of the control of the postphylotypic stage of development, especially the formation of organs and organ systems, is presented in chapter 6 (p. 139-202). An outline of the main features of the epigenetic system of heredity and its relationship with the genetic system of heredity is provided in chapter 7 (203-216). Interactions between metazoan organisms and their environment, metazoan responses (especially behavioral responses) to changes in the environment and the ontogeny as a workshop of evolutionary change are dealt with in three chapters (8-10) of Part 2 (Neural-developmental premises of evolutionary adaptation, pp. 219-281). In Part 3 (chapters 11 and 12, pp. 285-339) the author deals with the mechanisms of developmental plasticity, the so-called circumevolutionary phenomena, and reveals the essential similarity between the transgenerational developmental plasticity and evolutionary change. In Part 4, Epigenetics of Metazoan Evolution (p. 341-623), the author deals in details with evolution of the control system (chapter 13, pp. 341-377), developmental mechanisms of evolutionary change in evolutionary modifications (chapter 14, pp. 379-501), evolution by loss/vestigialization of organs (chapter 15, pp. 501-541), evolution by reverting to ancestral structures (chapter 16, pp. 543-569). A special chapter is devoted to the role of the neural crest, a uniquely vertebrate structure of neural origin, in evolution of de novo metazoan structures. Evolutionary convergences and their evolutionary-epigenetic implications are discussed in chapter 18. Part 5 (p.645-732) is devoted to description of epigenetic mechanisms as determinants of species formation in sympatry. For all the cases of evolution of structures and species formation described in the book, the author presents both the conventional neoDarwinian explanation and the epigenetic explanation making it possible for the reader to assess the relative explanatory power of the genetic and epigenetic explanations. The book was published in 2008 by Albanet Publishing and contains 880 pages."--Amazon
