Descripción Basic Books. 1 Cloth(s), 2015. hard. Estado de conservación: New. When Francis Crick and James Watson put forward their double-helix model of DNA structure in 1953, they set off an international race to uncover the secrets of the genetic code, which might reveal how a spiraling molecule gives rise to life. In this history—which features 16 pages of photographs—the author of Generation: The Seventeenth-Century Scientists Who Unraveled the Secrets of Sex, Life, and Growth chronicles how cooperation and competition between an assortment of eccentric characters—mathematicians, physicists, information theorists, and biologists—contributed to this revolutionary new science. Through a series of setbacks and triumphs, scientists arrived at an astonishing understanding of how matter forms, which Matthew Cobb suggests has important implications for future research."[This book is a] fine history of genetics. [A] gripping, insightful history, often from the mouths of the participants themselves."—Kirkus (starred review) 434. Nº de ref. de la librería 61944

Descripción The Perseus Books Group, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 239 x 157 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Everyone has heard of the story of DNA as the story of Watson and Crick and Rosalind Franklin, but knowing the structure of DNA was only a part of a greater struggle to understand life s secrets. Life s Greatest Secret is the story of the discovery and cracking of the genetic code, the thing that ultimately enables a spiraling molecule to give rise to the life that exists all around us. This great scientific breakthrough has had farreaching consequences for how we understand ourselves and our place in the natural world, and for how we might take control of our (and life s) future. Life s Greatest Secret mixes remarkable insights, theoretical dead-ends, and ingenious experiments with the swift pace of a thriller. From New York to Paris, Cambridge, Massachusetts, to Cambridge, England, and London to Moscow, the greatest discovery of twentieth-century biology was truly a global feat. Biologist and historian of science Matthew Cobb gives the full and rich account of the cooperation and competition between the eccentric characters--mathematicians, physicists, information theorists, and biologists--who contributed to this revolutionary new science. And, while every new discovery was a leap forward for science, Cobb shows how every new answer inevitably led to new questions that were at least as difficult to answer: just ask anyone who had hoped that the successful completion of the Human Genome Project was going to truly yield the book of life, or that a better understanding of epigenetics or junk DNA was going to be the final piece of the puzzle. But the setbacks and unexpected discoveries are what make the science exciting, and it is Matthew Cobb s telling that makes them worth reading. This is a riveting story of humans exploring what it is that makes us human and how the world works, and it is essential reading for anyone who d like to explore those questions for themselves.
