3. Biotechnology: Applying the Genetic Revolution [Hardcover]


Book Description

Publication Date: September 19, 2008 | ISBN-10: 0121755525 | ISBN-13: 978-0121755522 | Edition: 1
Unlike most Biotechnology textbooks, Dr. David P. Clark's "Biotechnology" approaches modern Biotechnology from a Molecular Basis, which grew out of the increasing biochemical understanding of physiology. Using straight forward, less-technical jargon, Clark manages to introduce each chapter with a basic concept, that ultimately evolves into a more specific detailed principle. This up-to-date text covers a wide realm of topics including forensics and bioethics using colorful illustrations and concise applications.

This book will help readers understand what molecular biotechnology actually is as a scientific discipline, how the research in this area is conducted, and how this technology may impact the future.

· Up-to-date text focuses on modern biotechnology with a molecular foundation
· Basic concepts followed by more detailed, specific applications
· Clear, color illustrations of key topics and concepts
· Clearly written without overly technical jargon or complicated examples

6. Our Posthuman Future: Consequences of the Biotechnology Revolution [Paperback]


Book Description

Publication Date: May 1, 2003 | ISBN-10: 0312421710 | ISBN-13: 978-0312421717
A decade after his now-famous pronouncement of “the end of history,” Francis Fukuyama argues that as a result of biomedical advances, we are facing the possibility of a future in which our humanity itself will be altered beyond recognition. Fukuyama sketches a brief history of man’s changing understanding of human nature: from Plato and Aristotle to the modernity’s utopians and dictators who sought to remake mankind for ideological ends. Fukuyama argues that the ability to manipulate the DNA of all of one person’s descendants will have profound, and potentially terrible, consequences for our political order, even if undertaken with the best of intentions. In Our Posthuman Future, one of our greatest social philosophers begins to describe the potential effects of genetic exploration on the foundation of liberal democracy: the belief that human beings are equal by nature.

10. Ethical Issues in Biotechnology [Hardcover]

Book Description

Publication Date: December 2002 | ISBN-10: 0742513572 | ISBN-13: 978-0742513570
Ethical Issues in Biotechnology is the first textbook of its kind, written collaboratively by a philosopher and a biologist to provide undergraduate students with a comprehensive, accessible introduction to the ethical and scientific fundamentals of biotechnology. Engaging the ethics and the science side by side, the text addresses pressing questions in agricultural, food, and animal biotechnology; human genetics; gene therapy; human cloning; and stem cell research. 

A general introduction to both the moral philosophy and fundamentals of genetics is enhanced throughout the text with section-specific introductions addressing the particular philosophical and scientific challenges posed by the topic under consideration. Diagrams and drawings, study cases, liberal use of practical examples, and suggestions for further reading make the text an ideal resource for a broad range of students interested in issues and questions lying at the intersection of philosophy and genetics.
