Human Genetics: Concepts and Applications

Human Genetics: Concepts and Applications, ninth edition, is a text that clearly explains what genes are, how they function, how they interact with the environment, and how our understanding of genetics has changed since completion of the human genome project. Meticulously updated, focused on concepts, and rich with personal stories from people whose lives are dramatically affected by the principles being discussed, Human Genetics is a textbook that will prepare the next generation of citizens for the decisions that lie ahead.

Human Genetic Engineering: A Guide for Activists, Skeptics, and the Very Perplexed

Human Genetic Engineering: A Guide for Activists, Skeptics, and the Very Perplexed

The debate over human Genetic Engineering (GE) is about to go mainstream. Not as a one-day wonder about cloning or a theological disagreement about embryos, but as a major political issue, driven in part by a grassroots movement of opposition. Human Genetic Engineering is a highly readable and entertaining guide. It explains in accessible language for a popular audience the essential questions that will arise in the future debates: What is human GE? Will it work? What perspectives should we remember? Who is doing what, and why?

Playing God?: Human Genetic Engineering and the Rationalization of Public Bioethical Debate (Morality and Society Series)

Playing God?: Human Genetic Engineering and the Rationalization of Public Bioethical Debate (Morality and Society Series)

Technology evolves at a dazzling speed, and nowhere more so than in the field of genetic engineering, where the possibility of directly changing the genes of one's children is quickly becoming a reality. The public is rightly concerned, but interestingly, they have not had much to say about the implications of recent advancements in human genetics. Playing God? asks why and explores the social forces that have led to the thinning out of public debate over human genetic engineering. John H. Evans contends that the problem lies in the structure of the debate itself. Disputes over human genetic engineering concern the means for achieving assumed ends, rather than being a healthy discussion about the ends themselves. According to Evans, this change in focus occurred as the jurisdiction over the debate shifted from scientists to bioethicists, a change which itself was caused by the rise of the bureaucratic state as the authority in such matters. The implications of this timely study are twofold. Evans not only explores how decisions about the ethics of human genetic engineering are made, but also shows how the structure of the debate has led to the technological choices we now face.

Forbidden Gates: How Genetics, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Synthetic Biology, Nanotechnology, & Human Enhancement Herald The Dawn Of Techno-Dimensional Spiritual Warfare

Forbidden Gates: How Genetics, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Synthetic Biology, Nanotechnology, & Human Enhancement Herald The Dawn Of Techno-Dimensional Spiritual Warfare

While Forbidden Gates includes fresh insights for traditional, tried and true methods of overcoming darkness, it also unveils for the first time how breakthrough advances in science, technology, and philosophy including cybernetics, bio-engineering, nanotechnology, machine intelligence, synthetic biology, and transhumanism will combine to create mind-boggling game-changes to everything you have ever known about spiritual warfare. How so? In recent years, astonishing technological developments have pushed the frontiers of humanity toward far-reaching morphological transformation that promises in the very near future to redefine what it means to be human. An international, intellectual and fast-growing cultural movement known as transhumanism intends the use of genetics, robotics, artificial intelligence and nanotechnology (GRIN technologies) as tools that will radically redesign our minds, our memories, our physiology, our offspring, and even perhaps, as Joel Garreau in his bestselling book Radical Evolution claims, our very souls. The technological, cultural, and metaphysical shift now under way unapologetically forecasts a future dominated by this new species of unrecognizably superior humans, and applications under study now to make this dream reality are being funded by thousa...

Genetics: Analysis and Principles

Genetics: Analysis and Principles

Genetics: Analysis and Principles is a one-semester, introductory genetics textbook that takes an experimental approach to understanding genetics. By weaving one or two experiments into the narrative of each chapter, students can simultaneously explore the scientific method and understand the genetic principles that have been learned from these experiments. Rob Brooker, author of market leading texts in Genetics and Intro Biology for majors, brings his clear and accessible writing style to this new edition. The integration of the genetics text and the power of digital world are now complete with McGraw-Hill's ConnectPlus. Users who purchase Connect Plus receive access to the full online ebook version of the textbook.

Genetic Engineering: A Fundamental Moral Approach: Genetic Manipulation in Human Beings

Genetic Engineering: A Fundamental Moral Approach: Genetic Manipulation in Human Beings

Genetic Engineering: A Fundamental Moral Approach. Recent discoveries in molecular biology have radically altered the science of genetics, posing new challenges for scientists and moralists alike. This new genetics requires a new model of creation that adequately addresses the weaknesses of two models of creation, the stewardship model and the co-creator model, that have been used to assess the limits and possibilities of genetic manipulation in human beings. Using a retrieved natural law approach, the author specifies a third model of creation that he calls "limited co-creator." As a corrective to the two earlier models, the limited co-creator model steers a middle course between prohibiting or severely limiting genetic manipulation and allowing unlimited genetic manipulation. This analysis will be of value to theologians, scientists, and general readers who are looking for a clearly articulated methodology that can be used to assess the feasibility of conducting genetic engineering in human beings prior to going down the clinical path.

Who We Are and How We Got Here: Ancient DNA and the New Science of the Human Past

Who We Are and How We Got Here: Ancient DNA and the New Science of the Human Past

Here is a groundbreaking book about how the extraction of ancient DNA from ancient bones has profoundly changed our understanding of human prehistory while resolving many long-standing controversies.   Massive technological innovations now allow scientists to extract and analyze ancient DNA as never before, and it has become clear—in part from David Reich's own contributions to the field—that genomics is as important a means of understanding the human past as archeology, linguistics, and the written word. In Who We Are and How We Got Here, Reich describes with unprecedented clarity just how the human genome provides not only all the information that a fertilized human egg needs to develop but also contains within it the history of our species. He explains how the genomic revolution and ancient DNA are transforming our understanding of the lineage of modern humans and how DNA studies reveal the deep history of inequality—among different populations, between the sexes, and among individuals within a population. His book gives the lie to the orthodoxy that there are no meaningful biological differenced among human populations, and at the same time uses the definitive evidence provided by genomics to show that the differences that do exist are unlikely to conform to famili...

The Science Behind 'Genetically Modified Humans'

Human Genetic Engineering

The media have been talking about “genetically modified humans” and “designer babies.” But what they’re really talking about is germ-line engineering: a process that could help eliminate heritable diseases. So why do some scientists want to pause the research? Hosted by: Hank Green ---------- Me...

What if my neighbor's kid was genetically modified? | Paul Knoepfler | TEDxVienna

Human Genetic Engineering

Having genetically modified children is no longer a science fictional phantasy, but a very likely future scenario. Labs are on the edge of being able to 'produce' modified human beings, but what does that imply? Should we all first be pre-selected before deemed worthy to live on earth? While scie...
