9780747259305: The Second Creation: The Age of Biological Control by the Scientists Who Cloned Dolly

The announcement by the team at the Roslin Institute that they had cloned a sheep - Dolly - from the cell of another adult sheep, sent shockwaves around the world. If this technique could work for one mammal, perhaps it could work for human beings; science fiction had become science fact. The authors explain the history of cloning, the scientific reasons behind their research and the ethical issues raised by it, and discuss where they believe this technology will lead.

Review:

'THE SECOND CREATION offers a rare insight into the minds of researchers who "just want to do good science" while being sensitive to the dilemmas raised by their discoveries' Georgina Ferry, Daily Mail 'An admirable chronicle of the birth of the world's first fatherless mammal, describing the science involved in intricate, but never baffling detail. THE SECOND CREATION is, if nothing else, commendably readable' Robin McKie, Observer 'Bring[s] a proper sense of perspective to a still highly fevered and often very ill-informed debate' Robin McKie, Observer 'This book is very readable. Non-scientists will not only learn a lot of biology, but they will also get a good idea of what makes scientists tick ... The book is excellent value for money.' Anne McLaren, Nature 'Readable, admirably clear and informative' Maggie Gee, Daily Telegraph 'the easy-to-use glossary and index prove invaluable, as does the diagram of the stages of cloning' Observer 'Extremely relevant' Sunday Times 'THE SECOND CREATION offers a rare insight into the minds of researchers who "just want to do good science" while being sensitive to the dilemmas raised by their discoveries' -- Georgina Ferry, Daily Mail 'An admirable chronicle of the birth of the world's first fatherless mammal, describing the science involved in intricate, but never baffling detail.
