A brief history of everyone who ever lived : the human story retold through our genes by Adam Rutherford( Book )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 1,105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

National Book Critics Circle Award?2017 Nonfiction Finalist " Nothing less than a tour de force?a heady amalgam of science, history, a little bit of anthropology and plenty of nuanced, captivating storytelling."? The New York Times Book Review, Editor's Choice A National Geographic Best Book of 2017 In our unique genomes, every one of us carries the story of our species?births, deaths, disease, war, famine, migration, and a lot of sex. But those stories have always been locked away?until now. Who are our ancestors? Where did they come from? Geneticists have suddenly become historians, and the hard evidence in our DNA has blown the lid off what we thought we knew. Acclaimed science writer Adam Rutherford explains exactly how genomics is completely rewriting the human story?from 100,000 years ago to the present. A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived will upend your thinking on Neanderthals, evolution, royalty, race, and even redheads. (For example, we now know that at least four human species once roamed the earth.) Plus, here is the remarkable, controversial story of how our genes made their way to the Americas?one that's still being written, as ever more of us have our DNA sequenced. Rutherford closes with "A Short Introduction to the Future of Humankind," filled with provocative questions that we're on the cusp of answering: Are we still in the grasp of natural selection? Are we evolving for better or worse? And ... where do we go from here?

The laws of medicine : field notes from an uncertain science by Siddhartha Mukherjee( Book )

17 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over a decade ago, when Siddhartha Mukherjee was a young, exhausted, and isolated medical resident, he discovered a book that would forever change the way he understood the medical profession. The book, The Youngest Science, forced Dr. Mukherjee to ask himself an urgent, fundamental question: Is medicine a "science"? Sciences must have laws -- statements of truth based on repeated experiments that describe some universal attribute of nature. But does medicine have laws like other sciences? Dr. Mukherjee has spent his career pondering this question -- a question that would ultimately produce some of most serious thinking he would do around the tenets of his discipline -- culminating in The Laws of Medicine. In this treatise, he investigates the most perplexing and illuminating cases of his career that ultimately led him to identify the three key principles that govern medicine. Brimming with historical details and modern medical wonders, this important book is a glimpse into the struggles and Eureka! moments that people outside of the medical profession rarely see
The gene : an intimate history by Siddhartha Mukherjee( Book )

27 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author draws on his scientific knowledge and research to describe the magisterial history of a scientific idea, the quest to decipher the master-code of instructions that makes and defines humans; that governs our form, function, and fate; and that determines the future of our children. The story of the gene begins in earnest in an obscure Augustinian abbey in Moravia in 1856 where Gregor Mendel, a monk working with pea plants, stumbles on the idea of a "unit of heredity." It intersects with Darwin's theory of evolution, and collides with the horrors of Nazi eugenics in the 1940s. The gene transforms postwar biology. It invades discourses concerning race and identity and provides startling answers to some of the most potent questions coursing through our political and cultural realms. It reorganizes our understanding of sexuality, gender identity, sexual orientation, temperament, choice, and free will, thus raising the most urgent questions affecting our personal realms. Above all, the story of the gene is driven by human ingenuity and obsessive minds--from Mendel and Darwin to Francis Crick, James Watson, and Rosalind Franklin to the thousands of scientists working today to understand the code of codes. Woven through the book is the story of Mukherjee's own family and its recurring pattern of schizophrenia, a haunting reminder that the science of genetics is not confined to the laboratory but is vitally relevant to everyday lives. The moral complexity of genetics reverberates even more urgently today as we learn to "read" and "write" the human genome--unleashing the potential to change the fates and identities of our children and our children's children.--Adapted from dust jacket
The gene : an intimate history by Siddhartha Mukherjee( Recording )

13 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning, bestselling author of The Emperor of All Maladies--a magnificent history of the gene and a response to the defining question of the future: What becomes of being human when we learn to "read" and "write" our own genetic information?The extraordinary Siddhartha Mukherjee has a written a biography of the gene as deft, brilliant, and illuminating as his extraordinarily successful biography of cancer. Weaving science, social history, and personal narrative to tell us the story of one of the most important conceptual breakthroughs of modern times, Mukherjee animates the quest to understand human heredity and its surprising influence on our lives, personalities, identities, fates, and choices. Throughout the narrative, the story of Mukherjee's own family--with its tragic and bewildering history of mental illness--cuts like a bright, red line, reminding us of the many questions that hang over our ability to translate the science of genetics from the laboratory to the real world. In superb prose and with an instinct for the dramatic scene, he describes the centuries of research and experimentation--from Aristotle and Pythagoras to Mendel and Darwin, from Boveri and Thomas Morgan to Crick, Watson and Rosa Franklin, all the way through the revolutionary twenty-first century innovators who mapped the human genome. As The New Yorker said of The Emperor of All Maladies, "It's hard to think of many books for a general audience that have rendered any area of modern science and technology with such intelligence, accessibility, and compassion ... An extraordinary achievement." Riveting, revelatory, and magisterial history of a scientific idea coming to life, and an essential preparation for the moral complexity introduced by our ability to create or "write" the human genome, The Gene is a must-read for everyone concerned about the definition and future of humanity. This is the most crucial science of our time, intimately explained by a master

A cancer in the family : take control of your genetic inheritance by Theodora Ross( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oncologist and cancer gene hunter Theo Ross delivers the first authoritative, go-to for people facing a genetic predisposition for cancer There are 13 million people with cancer in the United States, and it's estimated that about 1.3 million of these cases are hereditary. Yet despite advanced training in cancer genetics and years of practicing medicine, Dr. Theo Ross was never certain whether the history of cancers in her family was simple bad luck or a sign that they were carriers of a cancer-causing genetic mutation. Then she was diagnosed with melanoma, and for someone with a dark complexion, melanoma made no sense. It turned out there was a genetic factor at work. Using her own family's story, the latest science of cancer genetics, and her experience as a practicing physician, Ross shows listeners how to spot the patterns of inherited cancer, how to get tested for cancer-causing genes, and what to do if you have one. With a foreword by Siddartha Mukherjee, prize winning author of The Emperor of All Maladies, this will be the first authoritative, go-to for people facing inherited cancer, this book empowers listeners to face their genetic heritage without fear and to make decisions that will keep them and their families healthy

The emperor of all maladies by siddhartha mukherjee - key takeaways & analysis by Siddhartha Mukherjee( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scientist and physician Siddhartha Mukherjee, author of The Emperor of All Maladies, calls his book a biography of cancer rather than simply a history. The author explores a wide range of research, historical accounts, and personal stories in this intensive look at the back-story of cancer. This includes the evolution of cancer's nature, treatment, and the scientific and medical communities' understanding of the disease, as well as the support of the public and politicians in the crucial fight to find a cure. The author examines historical accounts of cancer, focusing mostly on events dating from the 1940s to present time. Along the way, he discusses how cancer research evolved and how the perceptions of the disease and its impact on the world changed with each account. Over time, proposed causes for cancer ran the gamut, some of which are proven to be true to this day, while others remain confined to the history books
