Abstract

L'analyse des génomes connaît actuellement un développement extraordinaire, notamment depuis 1990 avec la mise en œuvre du programme Génome humain. Ce programme a pour objectif le décryptage intégral des 3 milliards de bases qui constituent le patrimoine génétique de l'Homme, et l'identification des quelque 60 000 gènes qu'il contient. Les travaux des premières années ont porté sur l'étude de génomes d'organismes modèles et sur l'établissement des cartes physique et génétique du génome humain. Aujourd'hui, plusieurs génomes d'organismes ont déjà été déchiffrés, la cartographie du génome humain est terminée, et le séquençage intégral de ce génome débute. Cet ouvrage fait le point sur les travaux déjà réalisés et anticipe sur l'ampleur des découvertes à venir, sur leurs retombées en biologie fondamentale et en médecine, présentant ainsi la synthèse la plus actuelle de cette vaste entreprise scientifique. Alain Bernot a précédemment contribué à l'identification d'un gène responsable d'une maladie génétique chez l'homme (fièvre méditerranéenne familiale). Il s'adresse aux étudiants en 1er ou 2e cycle de biologie ou de médecine. Il sera également très utile aux candidats préparant les concours d'aptitude à l'enseignement (CAPES et agrégation) ainsi qu'à toute personne souhaitant avoir une vue d'ensemble complète sur cette discipline.

Abstract

This text provides an investigation into how the US Human Genome Project is likely to affect future generations. It explores the implications these effects hold for evaluating genetic research, particularly from a theological perspective. Examining the economic, political, and philosophical issues underlying genetic research, Heller finds that some future people may bear an inordinate share of certain social costs stemming from the Project's biomedical applications. Further, the existence, numbers, and identities of those people will be contingent on decisions made based on this research. Heller investigates the theological implications of this problem, arriving at an impersonal theocentric approach to value in this detailed, thoughtful, and original contribution to the literature.

Abstract

The Human Genome Project has been called a scientific 'search for the Holy Grail' or the genetics equivalent of the moon race. This book reviews, in nontechnical terms, the developments from different scientific teams that made it seem as if it would be possible to sequence the human genome. The Human Genome Project has been called a scientific "search for the Holy Grail" or the genetics equivalent of the moon race. Thousands of researchers worldwide are analyzing the details of human DNA, hoping to identify all of the tens of thousands of human genes that are the blueprint for the human body. Physicist and writer Tom Wilkie offers a lively, compelling history of this scientifically fascinating and politically contentious undertaking. Beginning with the discovery of DNA by James Watson and Francis Crick in 1953, Wilkie's narrative unfolds with the intrigue of a detective story. He reviews in nontechnical terms the many step-by-step developments from different scientific teams that finally made it seem as if it would be possible to sequence the human genome. He goes on to consider the potential social consequences, good and bad, of learning to manipulate the human genetic code. What will happen as we try to prevent and cure disease or attempt to "improve" ourselves and our children by genetic means? A most readable introduction to the science of genetics and the potential consequences of the Human Genome Project, Perilous Knowledge provides background for the startling headlines that quite possibly signal changes to all human life in the next century. After decades of painstaking research, seemingly disparate paths into the sciences of molecular biology, chemistry, biology and genetics have converged. Suddenly the scientists realize that they are . . . at the peak of a mountain where all the surrounding landscape is clear to their view. They are confident now that they can tackle one of the biggest and most profound issues in their science: unravelling the message of human inheritance.

Abstract

The Lives to Come is at once a concise and accessible guide to the research that scientists are conducting in the field of genetics, a realistic survey of the likely near-term contributions of that research to the treatment of disease, and a thoughtful probing of the deep moral and social issues raised by our increasing abilities to predict the onset of hereditary disease and to make decisions about the kinds of people who will be born. A distinguished scholar of the history and philosophy of science, Philip Kitcher insightfully addresses the practical and philosophical questions posed by the explosion of new discoveries in the field of genetics. As our ability to determine whether individuals are at risk for various diseases and disabilities increases, will medical treatments keep pace? Could widespread use of genetic tests lead to new forms of discrimination in insurance, employment, and how people are viewed by society? How can genetic knowledge improve law enforcement while protecting the rights of the innocent? As prenatal testing provides new opportunities to select the types of people brought into being, how can the abuse of that power be prevented so that we avoid the evils of the eugenic past? If scientists discover a genetic basis for traits deemed socially objectionable, might abortion become a tool for avoiding the birth of "undesirables"? To what extent do new discoveries support the idea that our destinies are written in our genes? More fundamentally, what will become of our self-image as we find out more and more about the mechanisms of our bodies and our brains?

Abstract

Qu'est-ce qui constitue l'unité et l'identité des êtres vivants? Telle est la question fondamentale de la biologie. Les techniques récentes de séquençage lui apportent une réponse profondément renouvelée, notamment grâce à la connaissance précise des génomes entiers. Antoine Danchin dresse le tableau de cette découverte essentielle. Il montre en particulier que les organismes vivants, à l'instar de la barque de Delphes, se révèlent infiniment inaccessibles à la prédiction et, en même temps, capables de produire de l'imprévu.

Abstract

L'ouvrage insiste sur les apports de la génétique à la compréhension de l'évolution et de l'éthologie. Ainsi sont abordés en chapitres pédagogiques les idées d'individus, de populations et d'espèces, l'origine de l'instabilité du génome, l'instabilité du milieu et ses conséquences, la phylogenèse et l'ontogenèse.
