The common thread : a story of science, politics, ethics, and the human genome by John Sulston( Book )

33 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 1,207 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

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

In [this book, the authors] take [the reader] behind the scenes for [a] look at the ... story of the Human Genome Project (or "HGP") - giving American readers their first opportunity to learn the real story behind all the bold headlines. From the joy and exuberance of success to the stark disappointments posed by inevitable failures, the politics, personalities, and ethics are frankly explored ... More than the story of human health versus corporate wealth, [this] is at once a compelling history and an impassioned call for ethical responsibility in scientific research.-Dust jacket

Double helix the DNA years( Visual )

Introduced by science historian Evelyn Fox Keller, the film begins with a clip from 'The Cambridge Story' (1953?), showing Francis Crick and James Watson, two of the scientists responsible for the discovery of the structure of DNA. The film continues with many other archive clips which include Maurice Wilkins explaining his difficulties in working with Rosalind Franklin and, in another clip, demonstrating x-ray crystallography. These are linked by a voice-over narrative and comments from scientists Richard Dawkins, Lewis Wolpert, Steve Jones, Psychologist Stephen Pinker and neurobiologist Kenan Malik. The programme then traces the change in ideas about genetic superiority that was brought about by the work of anthropologist Margaret Meade. While greater understanding of DNA increased comprehension of what it is to be human, her fieldwork in Samoa and Papua New Guinea promoted the idea that humanity was capable of many varieties of culture, equally valid. The importance attached to a biological past gave way to acceptance of the importance of nurture and the appreciation of human possibility

Global health and international community : ethical, political and regulatory challenges by John Coggon( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 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.
