Designs for Life: Molecular Biology After World War II - hardcover

2002, ISBN: 9780521570787

ID: 63d703c41d5a08e7f11c4cfcf566883a

An important 2002 study on the making of molecular biology and its cultural contexts. Molecular biology has come to dominate our perceptions of life, health and disease. In the decades following World War II, the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology at Cambridge was a world-renowned centre of this emerging discipline. It was here that Crick and Watson, Kendrew and Perutz, Sanger and Brenner pursued their celebrated investigations. Soraya de Chadarevian's important new study is the first to examine the creation and expansion of molecular biology through the prism of this remarkable institution. Firmly placing the history of the laboratory in its broader institutional and scientific context, she shows how molecular biology was built at the lab bench and through the wide circulation of tools, models and researchers, as well as in governmental committees, international exhibitions and television studios. Designs for Life is a major contribution both to the history of molecular biology, and to the history of science and technology in post-war Britain. Nominated as one of the top 5 Science books of 2002 by The Sunday Times.Table of contents:Introduction; Part I. Postwar Reconstruction and Biophysics: 1.
