It is all in the genes

Genetic Engineering
Threat or Promise?
Karp
1976

Understanding DNA and Gene Cloning
A Guide for the Curious
Drlica
1984

Genetic information is dramatically different from what we knew in the 70’s and 80’s.  No mention of Human Genome Project or Dolly, the sheep.  On the second title, does the subtitle “guide for the curious” seem odd?  I get the feeling maybe this is some kind of  mad scientist handbook.  Weed, please!

  • I love you all and the work you do on this blog. It’s brilliant and witty and I’ve told my librarian friends of it. A
