內容簡介

揭開生命之謎:探索現代生物學、遺傳學、人類學及環境科學

從人類DNA的解碼到具爭議性生物技術出現,科學家發現生命的演化過程,遠遠比人類歷史發展得更加快速。本書集結所有最頂尖的生物學家、基因學家、物理學家及專業科普作家的研究,解析生命的起源之謎,同時以深富教育意涵的內容,探索人類生命的終點。科普作家理察•道金斯及生物學家克萊格‧凡特以數位資訊科技研究基因,奠定基因組研究的基礎。

生物學家艾德華‧威爾森透過科學研究,觀察螞蟻的行為可指導人類建造超級有機體,進而發展透過細胞打造生物體。而科學家David Haig也發表母親與父親的個別影響,是如何改變人類基因組的發展;生物化學家凱利•穆利斯博士發表如何治癒致命的病毒。所有最令當代震撼的的科學突破,將在本書一一揭露。

The newest addition to John Brockman’s Edge.org series explores life itself, bringing together the world’s leading biologists, geneticists, and evolutionary theorists—including Richard Dawkins, Edward O. Wilson, J. Craig Venter, and Freeman Dyson.

Scientists’ understanding of life is progressing more rapidly than at any point in human history, from the extraordinary decoding of DNA to the controversial emergence of biotechnology. Featuring pioneering biologists, geneticists, physicists, and science writers, Life explains just how far we’ve come—and takes a brilliantly educated guess at where we’re heading.
Richard Dawkins and J. Craig Venter compare genes to digital information, and sketch the frontiers of genomic research.

Edward O. Wilson reveals what ants can teach us about building a superorganism—and, in turn, about how cells build an organism. Elsewhere, David Haig reports new findings on how mothers and fathers individually influence the human genome, while Kary Mullis covers cutting edge treatments for dangerous viruses. And there’s much more in this fascinating volume.

We may never have all the answers. But the thinkers collected in Life are asking questions that will keep us dreaming for generations.
