The astonishing hypothesis : the scientific search for the soul by Francis Crick( Book )
71 editions published between 1983 and 2005 in 11 languages and held by 2,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Forty years ago, Francis Crick, along with James Watson, made history with the discovery of the structure of DNA, forever changing our understanding of life itself. Now Crick is once again at the frontier of scientific discovery, turning his attention to the mysteries of human consciousness. Bent on deciphering the complexities of the brain, Crick maps out the neurobiology of vision. The result is a cogent, witty, and richly detailed analysis of how the brain "sees," and a daring exploration of some of the most fundamental questions of human existence: Do we have free will? What exactly is it that makes us sentient beings and different from other animals? Is there such a thing as a soul, or are we nothing more than an immensely complex collection of neurons? In this groundbreaking, provocative work, Francis Crick challenges the very foundations of current scientific, philosophical, and religious thought

Francis Crick beyond the double helix by Francis Crick( Visual )
4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program examines molecular biology and the discovery of the DNA molecule by Francis Crick. Includes interviews with Francis Crick
DNA ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A half-century ago, three teams with three different approaches raced to unravel the structure of DNA. This program blends interviews and commentary with extraordinary graphics to tell the story of how the unlikely duo of Jim Watson and Francis Crick won that race. Many of the principal figures in the quest discuss their frustrations and insights including Watson and Crick, Maurice Wilkins and Linus Pauling's son, Peter
The Great ideas today, 1980 ( Book )
1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Stories from the scientists DNA winding your way through DNA ( Visual )
7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 37 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
DNA ( Visual )

The DNA story ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1973 and 1978 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Concentrates upon the role of chemistry and physics in finding the structure of DNA; it thereby sets the scene for the rise of molecular biology and its foundation in crystallography and model building. Stresses the pragmatic model building of Crick and Watson and their mistakes. Contrasts their work with the classical crystallography of the Kings' group as well as their embarrassments. Ends with the realization of the correct base pairings to the confirmation of the twin helical structure from Franklin's x-ray pictures of the a and b forms of DNA and thence to the final structure
Ein irres Unternehmen : die Doppelhelix und das Abenteuer Molekularbiologie by Francis Crick( Book )
4 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in German and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The RNA world : the nature of modern RNA suggests a prebiotic RNA world by Raymond F Gesteland( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Recent studies on the activities of RNA in the cell have revolutionized our understanding of the many roles played by this molecule. The first two editions of The RNA World (1993, 1999) shed light on the pre-biotic era dominated by this versatile molecule, and provided an overview of the state of RNA research at the time. The new third edition of The RNA World updates this perspective, describing the vast array of newly discovered roles for RNA in the modern world. The updated original chapters are supplemented with new chapters on RNA-protein complexes, snRNPs and snoRNPs, telomerase RNA, RNAi, microRNAs, noncoding RNA, and many other subjects
