  • The cloning of Dolly in 1996 from the cell of an adult sheep was a pivotal moment in history For the first time, a team of scientists, led by Ian Wilmut and Keith Campbell, was able to clone a whole mammal using a single cultured adult body cell, a breakthrough that revolutionized three technologies genetic engineering, genomics, and cloning by nuclear transfer from adulThe cloning of Dolly in 1996 from the cell of an adult sheep was a pivotal moment in history For the first time, a team of scientists, led by Ian Wilmut and Keith Campbell, was able to clone a whole mammal using a single cultured adult body cell, a breakthrough that revolutionized three technologies genetic engineering, genomics, and cloning by nuclear transfer from adult cells and brought science ever closer to the possibility of human cloning In this definitive account, the scientists who accomplished this stunning feat explain their hypotheses and experiments, their conclusions, and the ethical and scientific ramifications of their work Written with award winning science writer Colin Tudge, The Second Creation is a landmark work that details the most exciting and challenging scientific discovery of the twentieth century.

    I read this as background to a novel I was writing, in about 2003. It was brilliant, easy to understand, and very interesting. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to understand the science behind cloning, and to also understand the scientists who work in the area. Was recommended to me by a friend who worked in biochemistry.

    Normally scientists are pretty dry when it comes to writing, but Dr. Wilmut has really made this one exceptionally interesting. If you are interested in cloning whatsoever this book is highly recommended as a brief history and details of the work that went on to create Dolly the cloned sheep from start to finish.

    This is a good read if a little slow. I enjoyed hearing what really went into the cloning of dolly and what it means more broadly for science. Reminds you that scientists with big, famous work are still people.

    La historia de la clonación de Dolly sigue siendo interesante después de casi 20 años. La divulgación de problemas científicos complejos atrae a muchos lectores. El tema de este libro sigue siendo relevante.

    "And although the story is complicated, it is biology, and biology is not physics: that is to say, it is not weird " I think I'm going to love this book. :)
