Life at the speed of light : from the double helix to the dawn of digital life by J. Craig Venter( Book )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2010, scientists led by Venter became the first to successfully create "synthetic life," putting humankind at the threshold of actually writing the genetic code for designing new species to help us adapt and evolve for long-term survival. He presents a fascinating and authoritative study of this emerging field from the inside, detailing its origins, current challenges and controversies, and projected effects on our lives
Surviving progress by Mathieu Roy( Visual )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Technological advancement, economic development, population increase - are they signs of a thriving society, or too much of a good thing? Executive produced by Martin Scorsese, 'Surviving Progress' is a provocative documentary that explores the concept of progress in the modern world, guiding through the major 'progress traps' facing civilization in the arenas of technology, economics, consumption, and the environment

Automated DNA sequencing and analysis by Mark D Adams( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A timely book for DNA researchers, Automated DNA Sequencing and Analysis reviews and assesses the state of the art of automated DNA sequence analysis-from the construction of clone libraries to the developmentof laboratory and community databases. It presents the methodologies and strategies of automated DNA sequence analysis in a way that allows them to be compared and contrasted. By taking a broad view of the process of automated sequence analysis, the present volume bridges the gap between the protocols supplied with instrument and reaction kits and the finalized data presented in th
Benzodiazepine/GABA receptors and chloride channels : structural and functional properties( Book )

Life running out of control designer babies and gene robbery by Bertram Verhaag( Visual )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the possibility of a future in which physical strength and assertiveness are the topselling items on "baby menus" and other frightening implications of market-driven genetic engineering. Showing how the government-funded Human Genome Project has become highly lucrative for pharmaceutical companies, the film examines the cases of exploitative gene harvesting in Iceland and Peru. Interviews with prominent scientists and activists highlight the dangers of patenting genetic data and an absence of public discourse about artificial gene selection

Interview with Craig Venter( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science author and broadcaster Richard Corfield travels to Valencia in Spain to interview Craig Venter, recognised as one of the leading scientists of the 21st century for his visionary work in genetic research. In 1998 Craig Venter and his private sector company succeeded in sequencing the human genome using some novel techniques coupled with sophisticated computers. Today this controversial scientist argues that CO2 in the atmosphere is the biggest problem facing our planet. He suggests that we are now in the century of biology and that synthetic chromosomes could be the new tool set used by scientists in the future; replacing the entire petrochemical industry with new biological technologies that will create new form of sustainable energy
Life at the speed of light from the double helix to the dawn of digital life by J. Craig Venter( Recording )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The science of synthetic genomics will have a profound impact on human existence, including chemical and energy generation, health, clean water and food production, environmental control, and possibly even evolution. Venter presents a fascinating and authoritative study of this emerging field from the inside, detailing its origins, current challenges and controversies, and projected effects on human life
Annotation of the Celera human genome assembly( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

DNA( Visual )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1990, a massive enterprise was launched to map the individual genes in the human genome. Known as the Human Genome Project, it soon turned into a race and a feud. This program tracks the progress of the endeavor, detailing the scientific innovations that led to its completion, as well as its political and economic impact. Among those who discuss the project are initial rivals Francis Collins and J. Craig Venter; Dr. John Sulston; Sir Alex Jeffreys, the discoverer of DNA fingerprinting; Nobel Laureates Fred Sanger and Jim Watson; and former President Bill Clinton
Cracking the ocean code( Visual )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Join genome pioneer Dr. J. Craig Venter as he scours the world's oceans for new life forms and genetic secrets that could help solve the planet's most urgent energy and climate challenges. From Nova Scotia to the Galapagos islands to Antarctica, Dr. Venter embarks on a mission to map the DNA of every microscopic organism in the ocean. Along the way, he discovers new species and new methods of tackling weather anomalies, ocean pollutants and even global warming." -- Container
