Engineering the Human Germline: An Exploration of the Science and Ethics of Altering the Genes We Pass to Our Children / Edition 1by Gregory Stock, John Campbell
Pub. Date: 02/03/2000
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
This accessible and challenging book looks beyond the immediate question of cloning to the broader questions of using genetic engineering to alter the evolution of the human species. The book covers both the hands-on scientific details and the many ethical and social concerns. It includes a discussion of recent successes in cloning large animals and examines the implications for medicine and for our future. Contributors include many of the world leaders in the field: Lee Hood, French Anderson, Mario Capecchi, Dan
Koshland, Michael Rose, Lee Silver, and James Watson.
