4-0 out of 5 stars Clear introduction to a difficult subject
Toriello's introduction to the human genome project is a good source for middle school science students.It offers a brief history of genetics, information about the project's goals and accomplishments to date, and explanations of how genetic testing and therapy are currently being used. It also raises some ethical questions which put it, if one is realistic, beyond elementary readers, but which might lead to discussions with adolescent audiences.

Product Description
A unique exploration of the principles and methods underlying the Human Genome Project and modern molecular genetics and biotechnology-from two top researchers

In Genomics, Charles R. Cantor, former director of the Human Genome Project, and Cassandra L. Smith give the first integral overview of the strategies and technologies behind the Human Genome Project and the field of molecular genetics and biotechnology. Written with a range of readers in mind-from chemists and biologists to computer scientists and engineers-the book begins with a review of the basic properties of DNA and the chromosomes that package it in cells. The authors describe the three main techniques used in DNA analysis-hybridization, polymerase chain reaction, and electrophoresis-and present a complete exploration of DNA mapping in its many different forms. By explaining both the theoretical principles and practical foundations of modern molecular genetics to a wide audience, the book brings the scientific community closer to the ultimate goal of understanding the biological function of DNA. Genomics features:

  • Topical organization within chapters for easy reference
  • A discussion of the developing methods of sequencing, such as sequencing by hybridization (SBH) in which data is read through words instead of letters
  • Detailed explanations and critical evaluations of the many different types of DNA maps that can be generated-including cytogenic and restriction maps as well as interspecies cell hybrids
  • Informed predictions for the future of DNA sequencing

Product Description
Zilinskas and Balint and their contributors examine the divisions between minority groups and the scientific community, particularly in the area of medical and genetic research. Minorities have reasons to be skeptical of medical research in general and genetics research in particular. The notorious Tuskegee syphilis experiment is, perhaps, only the most publicized of these. In contrast, Zilinskas and Balint argue that the Human Genome Project has the potential to make dramatic positive contributions to the health of all human beings. Members of minority communities in particular have much to gain from innovative medical diagnostics and therapies that will result from the study of human genetics. ... Read more

Product Description

Most science chronicles present a triumphant march through time, with revolutionary thinkers and their discoveries following in orderly progression. The truth, however, is somewhat different. Scientific Feuds is a collection of the most vicious battles among the greatest minds of our time. It features such contests as Huxley and Wilberforce's debate on Darwin's theory of evolution, Franklin and Wilkins' fight over the discovery of DNA, and the “War of Currents” between Tesla and Edison (which ended with Edison electrocuting dogs and horses in a vain attempt to discredit Tesla's work). From passionate competition to vindictive sniping, these rivalries prove that the world of science is far from cold and methodical.

Product Description
James Watson, a discoverer of the structure of DNA, described it as "the most golden of molecules," the true chemical for life. Indeed, it is the essential component from which our genes are made. In it is encoded the genetic language that controls our destinies. Astonishingly powerful, just six millionths of a gram of DNA carries as much information as ten volumes of the Oxford English Dictionary.The "Book of Man," is the term used by Walter Bodmer and Robin McKie for the DNA that is the instruction set according to which all humans are made. At conception, a single cell--the fertilized egg--is produced, and it is this one cell that has the potential to form a new and unique individual under the guidance of the DNA within its nucleus. The human body is made up of a hundred million million cells of many different sorts, and all contain the inherited information that comes from that first, single cell created at fertilization. Bodmer and McKie assert that when we learn how to read DNA's pages and chapters we will obtain the information relevant to the understanding of most diseases, individual differences in behavior, and a new awareness of our own history and evolution. The Book of Man explores how genetic information is now being read and interpreted by focusing on biology's most ambitious undertaking to date--the Human Genome Project, an attempt to uncover all the 100,000 genes that control our development and detail the DNA alphabet of each. The authors go on to wrestle with the moral and ethical issues of modern genetics, making a case for a rational appraisal of genetic engineering and for the public to become sufficiently "DNA literate" in order to appreciate the crucial role it plays in our lives.

From Gregor Mendel's discovery of the laws of inheritance to the high-tech, crime-stopping power of forensics science and the fascinating but sometimes troublesome implications of the latest science of genetic engineering, The Book of Man brilliantly explores and explains the quest that is changing our understanding of what it means to be a human being.Amazon.com Review
The Human Genome Project, biology's equivalent of the Apollolunar-landing program, aims to uncover all 100,000 genes that controlhuman development and to detail the DNA alphabet of each.

2-0 out of 5 stars Interesting anecdotes but short on human genome information
By putting "The Human Genome Project" in the title one is deluded into thinking that the book may contain results from post 1991 human genome research. The reader will be disappointed. The anecdotes are interesting and well written accounts of events concerning use of genetic/DNA material to find the gene related cause of some hereditary diseases. Also some stories are about use of DNA in forensic cases. The book was originally published in 1994 and republished in PB in 1997. The Amazon description might have included this fact. I plan to return the book owing to its lack human genome project information. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Cut the nonsense
Rather than say that the human genome project raises "challenging issues" or "unique problems", let's tell it like it is: The human genome project is going to destroy mankind. The same scientists that brought us weaponized anthrax (and some loony scientist is running loose right now with it),biological warfare (who are these scientists and how do they sleep at night?) cannot guarantee us any safeguards on the way that the genome project info will be used. They don't care. they are too busy patenting their findings so they can become billionaires. This is the beginning of the end and it is already too late to keep people from breeding humans like cattle and altering them so that they can become anything from ferocious soldiers to passiver, non-complaining worker bees. Thank, Mr. Wizard.

5-0 out of 5 stars An invaluable, benchmark publication.
The Human Genome Project will complete mapping the human genetic structure in just another four or five years and constitutes the single largest project ever undertaken in the life sciences. It will help to pinpoint thegenetic basis of virtually any human trait or frailty. It offers thepossibility for medical interventions for virtually all diseases anddisabilities related to genetic processes. Controlling Our Destinies:Historical, Philosophical, Ethical, And Theological Perspectives On TheHuman Genome Project surveys and analyses the complex, far-reaching issuesand values surrounding the Human Genome Project including new forms ofpositive "eugenics", and the challenge of the project fortheological perspectives on human life. Controlling Our Destinies is aninterdisciplinary assemblage of humanistic scholars that will prove aninvaluable, benchmark publication for both humanists and scientists fordiscussions of the religious, ethical, and moral considerations attendantto such a radical advance in human control over human biology.

Excerpt:The 1000 Genomes Project , launched in January 2008, is an international research effort to establish by far the most detailed catalogue of human genetic variation . Scientists plan to sequence the genomes of at least one thousand anonymous participants from a number of different ethnic groups within the next three years, using newly developed technologies which are faster and less expensive. The project unites multidisciplinary research teams from institutes around the world, including the United Kingdom , China and the United States . Each will contribute to the enormous sequence dataset and to a refined human genome map , which will be freely accessible through public databases to the scientific community and the general public alike. By providing an overview of all genetic variation, not only what is biomedically relevant, the consortium will generate a valuable tool for all fields of natural science, especially in the disciplines of Genetics , Medicine , Pharmacology , Biochemistry and Bioinformatics . Changes in the number and order of genes (A-D) create genetic diversity within and between populations. Background Within the past few decades, advances in human population genetics and comparative genomics have made it possible to gain increasing insight into the nature of genetic diversity.

Editorial Review

Product Description
The project to map the human genetic codes has been widely hailed as a monumental achievement with vast medical promise. Yet the project is also fraught with ambiguities and, Susan Thistlethwaite claims, great potential dangers to society. This important book combines a basic primer on genetic research with ethical reflection by an interdisciplinary team on key questions and a deeper look, in light of such research, at what it means to be human.

Part 1 of the book places genetic research in historical perspective, including the historical prickliness between science and religion. It shows how we have gotten from Gregor Mendel’s experiments with peas to today’s Human Genome Project. Part 2 explores ethical issues posed by genetic testing, screening, and counseling; gene therapy; stem-cell research; dangers of misuse through genetic identification; and engineering of particular populations (violent people, ethnic groups, gays and lesbians). Part 3 explores the possibilities of reconstruing human identity for the coming "biological age." Contributors include Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite, Laurel Schneider, Lainie Ross, Theodore W. Jennings Jr., Ken Stone, and Lee Butler. ... Read more

Product Description
DNA sequencing refers to sequencing methods for determining the order of the nucleotide bases?adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine?in a molecule of DNA. Knowledge of DNA sequences has become indispensable for basic biological research, other research branches utilizing DNA sequencing, and in numerous applied fields such as diagnostic, biotechnology or forensic biology. The advent of DNA sequencing has significantly accelerated biological research and discovery. The rapid speed of sequencing attained with modern DNA sequencing technology has been instrumental in the sequencing of the human genome, in the Human Genome Project. Related projects, often by scientific collaboration across continents, have generated the complete DNA sequences of many animal, plant, and microbial genomes. The first DNA sequences were obtained by academic researchers, using laborious methods based on 2-dimensional chromatography in the early 1970s. Following the development of dye-based sequencing methods with automated analysis, DNA sequencing has become easier and orders of magnitude faster. ... Read more

Product Description
Drawing the Map of Life is the dramatic story of the Human Genome Project from its origins, through the race to order the 3 billion subunits of DNA, to the surprises emerging as scientists seek to exploit the molecule of heredity. Its the first account to deal in depth with the intellectual roots of the project, the motivations that drove it, and the hype that often masked genuine triumphs.Distinguished science journalist Victor McElheny offers vivid, insightful profiles of key people, such as David Botstein, Eric Lander, Francis Collins, James Watson, Michael Hunkapiller, and Craig Venter. McElheny also shows that the Human Genome Project is a striking example of how new techniques (such as restriction enzymes and sequencing methods) often arrive first, shaping the questions scientists then ask.Drawing on years of original interviews and reporting in the inner circles of biological science, Drawing the Map of Life is the definitive, up-to-date story of todays greatest scientific quest. No one who wishes to understand genome mapping and how it is transforming our lives can afford to miss this book. ... Read more
