DNA : the secret of life by James D Watson ( Book )

"Fifty years ago, James D. Watson, then just twenty-four, helped launch the greatest ongoing scientific quest of our time. Now, with unique authority and sweeping vision, he gives us the first full account of the genetic revolution - from Mendel's garden to the double helix to the sequencing of the human genome and beyond." "But genetics as we recognize it today - with its capacity, both thrilling and sobering, to manipulate the very essence of living things - came into being only with the rise of molecular investigations culminating in the breakthrough discovery of the structure of DNA, for which Watson shared a Nobel prize in 1962. In the DNA molecule's graceful curves was the key to a whole new science." "Watson provides the general reader with clear explanations of molecular processes and emerging technologies. He shows us how DNA continues to alter our understanding of human origins, and of our identities as groups and as individuals. And with the insight of one who has remained close to every advance in research since the double helix, he reveals how genetics has unleashed a wealth of possibilities to alter the human condition - from genetically modified food to genetically modified babies - and transformed itself from a domain of pure research into one of big business as well. It is a sometimes topsy-turvy world full of great minds and great egos, driven by ambitions to improve the human condition as well as to improve investment portfolios, a world vividly captured in these pages."--BOOK JACKET

Phage and the origins of molecular biology : [essays] by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory of Quantitative Biology ( Book )
28 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This collection of essays, written by pioneers in the field of molecular biology, was first published in 1966 as a 60th birthday tribute to Max Delbruck. A formative influence on many of today's leading scientists, the book was seen not just as a valuable historical record but also as a remarkable portrait of a small, pioneering, close-knit scientific community that transcended age, nationality, and academic discipline to focus intensely on the most important questions in biology. This centennial edition reflects a more personal side of Delbruck, and includes a series of photographs from his family's albums."--BOOK JACKET
Recombinant DNA : genes and genomes : a short course by James D Watson ( Book )
12 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The indelible stamp : the evolution of an idea by Charles Darwin ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For the first time in one volume, here are four of the most influential works of Charles Darwin, reprinted in their entirety, each illuminated by commentary from eminent scientist James D. Watson. Included are On the Origin of Species, arguably the most important scientific work of the nineteenth century; Voyage of the Beagle, a captivating travelogue richly stocked with observations that helped guide the young Darwin through his evolutionary world view; The Descent of Man, which explored the origins of humans and their history; and The Expressions of Emotions in Man and Animals, which explored the origin and nature of the mind. With separate introductions for each of Darwin's books, Watson goes further to explain how the modern considerations underlying genome research would have been impossible without Darwin, bringing a contemporary relevance to these nineteenth century masterworks.--From publisher description

La Double hélice : compte rendu personnel de la découverte de la structure de l'ADN by James D Watson ( Book )
15 editions published between 1968 and 1999 in French and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
En 1953, Crick, Watson et Wilkins découvraient la structure en "double hélice" de l'ADN, l'acide désoxyribonucléique, la substance qui contient tout le code de l'hérédité. Cette découverte, couronnée par le prix Nobel de médecine et de physiologie en 1962, déclencha le développement prodigieux de la biologie moléculaire. Cette découverte est ici relatée telle qu'elle a été vécue par un chercheur
