Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What exactly is a gene? How does cloning actually work? Are designer babies a bad idea? Could we ever clone a human? The Rough Guide To Genes & Cloning answers all these questions and more. From the inside story of cells and their structure and the sleuths who cracked the genetic code to DNA cloning, twins and Dolly the sheep. Illustrated throughout with helpful pictures and diagrams, this Rough Guide turns the microscope on the things that make us what we are.

Book News Annotation:

From Dolly the celebrity cloned sheep to the potential for cloned pets and "designer" babies, UK scientists answer basic questions about genetics and discuss the history of the field, Human Genome Project, influence of genes on health and behavior, future directions, and political debates over their implications. The guide includes annotated lists of bioethics bodies worldwide; relevant science books, Websites, fiction, and movies; and a glossary. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
