9780521207744: Designs for Life: Molecular Biology after World War II

Molecular biology has come to dominate our perceptions of life, health and disease. In the decades following World War II, the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology at Cambridge was a world-renowned center of this emerging discipline. Crick and Watson, among others, did the work that made them famous in this laboratory. Soraya de Chadarevian's important new study is the first to examine the creation and expansion of molecular biology and its place on the postwar governmental agenda through the prism of this remarkable institution.

Book Description:

Molecular biology dominates our perceptions of life, health and disease. In the postwar years, the Medical Research Council Laboratory at Cambridge was a world-renowned center of this emerging discipline; this important new study examines the development of the new science of life in the context of this remarkable institution.

Review:

"I enjoyed this book tremendously, and would highly recommend Design for Life to any reader with an interest in the history of the sciences." Laurette Geldenhuys, Dalhousie University, in The Canadian Bulletin of Medical History

"The book is thoroughly and professionally researched and a significant contribution to the history of molecular biology." Isis

"de Chadarevian's historical account is recommended to all who are interested in the development of molecular biology." Nature

"De Chadarevian offers a timely book, pertinent because of the recent 50th anniversary of the publication of Watson and Crick's description of DNA..... For all 'students' of molecular biology. Recommended." Choice

"Designs for Life makes a contribution both to the history of molecular biology and to the history of science and technology in postwar Britain" Bulletin of Science Technology and Society

"This is an excellent book....a well-written, extensively researched book that sheds new light on the evolution of molecular biology....a very significant contribution to the literature on the history of molecular biology." Journal of the History of Medicine

"With its many perspectives on the rise of molecular biology in Britain, Designs for Life will be appreciated by biologists, historians, and those involved with science policy. The book will surely interest anyone intrigued by the way science seems to follow its own internal logic while participating centrally in the society in which it is embedded." Science

"The juxtaposition of cultural analysis and institutional history is a refreshing change of perspective for the history of molecular biology." Rena Selya, Harvard University

Descripción CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Molecular biology has come to dominate our perceptions of life, health and disease. In the decades following World War II, the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology at Cambridge was a world-renowned centre of this emerging discipline. It was here that Crick and Watson, Kendrew and Perutz, Sanger and Brenner pursued their celebrated investigations. Soraya de Chadarevian s important study was the first to examine the creation and expansion of molecular biology through the prism of this remarkable institution. Firmly placing the history of the laboratory in its broader institutional and scientific context, she shows how molecular biology was built at the lab bench and through the wide circulation of tools, models and researchers, as well as in governmental committees, international exhibitions and television studios. Designs for Life is a major contribution both to the history of molecular biology, and to the history of science and technology in post-war Britain. Nº de ref. de la librería AAV9780521207744
