Geneticist Who Played Hoops with My DNA: -- and Other Masterminds from the Frontiers of Biotech
David Ewing Duncan (au)
Combining myth, biography, & wit -- a highly original depiction of cutting-edge science -- told through the scientists who are rewriting life on earth. An insightful narrative about science & personality, delving into stem cell research, cloning, bioeng., extending life span, & genetics by telling the stories of the characters at the fulcrum of the science. Calling to mind age-old stories & myths -- Prometheus, Faustus, Eve, & Frankenstein -- Duncan asks: Can we trust these scientists? Tells the stories of the masterminds, from the co-solver of the DNA structure, James Watson, to a man who is creating synthetic life, Craig Venter. Reveals their quirky, fascinating, & vaguely unsettling personas as a way to understand their science & the implicat. of their work.
