In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Powerful technologies can be used wisely or unwisely . . . It is not just DNA research which worries people, but reproductive, cellular and genetic research generally. Much of this technology is being rushed into widespread use, with little time to debate or educate the public. This makes it all the more important that the key issues of modern biotechnology are outlined in a simple yet authoritative way.
The human genome was published in June 2000. This historic event marked the close of a century in which we have made extraordinary advances in genetic engineering techniques.
What are some of the implications, for scientists and for society, of the amazing medical technology that is now available? Who should decide what is an ethical, or a safe, experiment? And how does our ability to manipulate life affect our perceptions of our place in the universe?
In this third, fully updated edition of Reshaping Life, Professor Ross Coppel joins eminent biologist Professor Gustav Nossal to explain in simple terms the techniques now being developed and used in genetic engineering.
