  • The Genomics Age: How DNA Technology Is Transforming the Way We Live and Who We Are By Gina Smith What happens when universal truth comes face to face with inexorable progress Since the advent of life, every creature has been beholden to its genetic blueprint drawn at conception, it is Article I of an immutable compact with the laws of nature.But mankind has never fully bought into that covenant, and human history is woven out of our perpetual attempts to renegotiate What happens when universal truth comes face to face with inexorable progress Since the advent of life, every creature has been beholden to its genetic blueprint drawn at conception, it is Article I of an immutable compact with the laws of nature.But mankind has never fully bought into that covenant, and human history is woven out of our perpetual attempts to renegotiate The latest manifestations of this timeless quest are major developments in DNA science and technology These quantum leaps have positioned mankind before an almost inconceivable array of opportunities and with them a daunting vortex of ethical and social issues to influence or even determine our individual and collective destinies.The Genomics Age is your guide to this startling new reality, a very near future in which science will empower us to make decisions with profound biological, moral, economic, and societal implications Gina Smith, an internationally renowned, award winning journalist whose work has given popular audiences insight into complex science issues for years, explains the history and technology behind these advances, and probes the fundamental questions they pose Can we conquer cancer and other diseases once and for all Learn why the majority of cancer specialists believe that most cancers will be cured within the next twenty years.Will we ever bridge the ideological, religious, and political divides in the stem cell debate See how the two sides agree much often than not.Does the rush to develop anti aging drugs mean we are on the verge of finding the fountain of youth Learn how a scientist keeps lab worms fit and healthy while sextupling their lifespans.As we eliminate disease, pick and choose the attributes of our children, and discover yet to be conceived applications of DNA science, will cracking the very code of life change what it means to be human In the history of mankind, few scientific phenomena have so profoundly altered the human experience as will the DNA technology revolution As we grapple with the promise and challenge of a truly new frontier, we must all educate ourselves about the what, even as we seek to answer the infinitely larger question of why The Genomics Age is the perfect starting point.

    This book gave an overview of how far the science community has come in regards to biotechnology and in specific, DNA technology It also touched on the implications that are begining to arise in the area of bioethics I had hoped this would be of an ethics piece than an introduction to molecular biology book, but it failed to do so Half the book was spent reviewing basic biology which most people with a high school education would know the gist of and left out interesting details I was hoping to [...]

    Easy to read book that should engage those starting to enjoy the subject of genomics Covers ABC s painlessly then delves into some of the important changes genomics has and can have I hadn t read Gina Smith before but now am tempted to give another of her books a try due to the supreme clarity she wrote this with If that sounds like an affiliation with the author it ain t just appreciation for everybody participating in science technology and able to bridge the laymen gap so well Reading time i [...]

    This is a very readable introduction to genetics and applications in medicine and technology Certain features were distracting, such as random quotes, and Smith waters the information down a little too much in her quest to make the information understandable to all A in depth look at how DNA actually works would have allowed her to delve a little deeper into certain key issues.

    A good general introduction to genomics and technology coming from molecular biology A little too general though More scientific detail would have made it satisfying.
