Most widely held works by Herbert W Boyer
Genetic engineering : proceedings of the International Symposium on Genetic Engineering: Scientific Developments and Practical Applications held in Milan, Italy, 29-31 March, 1978 by International Symposium on Genetic Engineering: Scientific Developments and Practical Applications( Book )

13 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

DNA( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty years after the discovery of DNA's structure, another revolution swept biology when scientists began learning how to manipulate genes outright. The controversy continues to this day. This program tells the story of genetic engineering's pioneers, focusing on the race to synthesize insulin and the development of genetically modified crops. Spectacular computer animations of molecular processes are paired with commentary by key researchers

Stories from the scientists DNA : winding your way through DNA( Visual )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Francis Crick and James Watson describe how they discovered the structure of DNA, and Herbert Boyer and Stanley Cohen recall how they developed the first Methods for Combining DNA molecules and cloning genes. The narrative weaves together interviews, animation, re-anactment, and historical footage to illustrate the participants' scientific achievements, their personalities, and their individual approaches to the challenge of discovery

Winding your way through DNA( Visual )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focuses on the discoveries that started the revolution in DNA technology, including how a late-night talk about the possibility of cloning DNA became a moment of personal discovery and how DNA can now be engineered in the lab to produce large amounts of useful proteins. The session ends with a bit of musical whimsy

Emergence of biotechnology : DNA to Genentech : reflections and assessment( Visual )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A Symposium organised by the Chemical Heritage Foundation in Philadelphia, PA, brought together a panel of scientists, Nobel Laureates, historians of science, and leaders in the biotechnology industry to discuss the concerns surrounding the modern biotech revolution. Panellists reflect on personal experiences and insights from biotechnology's emerging years and assess their own roles in the discoveries and debates that took place. They also discuss issues raised by the audience who attended the symposium. The CHF President Arnold Thackray said in his introduction to the proceedings that the aim of the symposium was "to record and make the history of the molecular sciences and technologies", which may provide an exciting archive for historians of science. A transcript of the symposium is held in the MFVL collection
