  • Homology, Genes, and Evolutionary Innovationby GŁnter P. Wagner

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 60.00

    Homology?a similar trait shared by different species and derived from common ancestry, such as a seal?s fin and a bird?s wing?is one of the most fundamental yet challenging concepts in evolutionary biology. This groundbreaking book provides the first mechanistically based theory of what homology is and how it arises in evolution. GŁnter Wagner, one... more...

  • Playing God?by Ted Peters

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 33.95

    Since the original publication of Playing God? in 1996, three developments in genetic technology have moved to the center of the public conversation about the ethics of human bioengineering. Cloning, the completion of the human genome project, and, most recently, the controversy over stem cell research have all sparked lively debates among religious... more...

  • Genetic Engineeringby Jane K. Setlow

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 189.00

    Presents discussions in modern genetics and genetic engineering.
