The common thread a story of science, politics, ethics, and the human genome by John Sulston ( )
16 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 2,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"John Sulston was director of the Sanger Centre in Cambridge from 1993 to 2000. There he led the British arm of the international team selected to map the entire human DNA sequence, a feat that was pulled off in record time by an extraordinary collaboration of scientists. The ultimate success of the project, after innumerable setbacks and challenges from outside competitors, can be attributed in large part to John Sulston's own determination, passion and scientific excellence." "In this personal account he takes us behind the scenes of one of the largest international scientific operations ever undertaken. He reveals the politics, controversy, ethics, personalities, setbacks and accomplishments that shaped the seven years of research. He is frank about the competition with Craig Venter and Celera Genomics, which threatened to undermine the international community's attempts to make the sequence freely available to everyone. He shares with us his excitement as the project unfolded. And as a pragmatist he reveals his hopes and concerns about how the information unlocked by the Human Genome Project will affect people's lives in the future."--Jacket

Bioscience and the Good Life by John Harris ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The field of biotechnology has provided us with radical revisions and reappraisals of the nature and possibilities of our biological existence. Yet beyond its immediate utility, does a life that is healthier, longer, or freer from disease make us 'better' or more moral people? Bioscience and the Good Life explores the complex relationship between modern biosciences and human flourishing, their sympathies and schisms, and the instances of their reconciliation. Here cognitive enhancement, longevity, and the spectacle of excellence in sports, are examined within the context of what constitutes a
Global health and international community : ethical, political and regulatory challenges by John Coggon ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Global health arguably represents the most pressing issues facing humanity. Trends in international migration and transnational commerce render state boundaries increasingly porous. Human activity in one part of the world can lead to health impacts elsewhere. Animals, viruses and bacteria as well as pandemics and environmental disasters do not recognize or respect political borders. It is now widely accepted that a global perspective on the understanding of threats to health and how to respond to them is required, but there are many practical problems in establishing such an approach.
