Genetic Engineering, DNA, and Cloning: A Bibliography in the Future of Genetics

Synopsis

"If read in bed, this volume will supplant counting sheep as an aid to slumber. But used in the office or laboratory, this devoid-of-text listing of some 8,000 literature citations, organized into more than 150 categories and cross-referenced by author, is an eye-opening account of the proliferation of gene-splicing literature primary, news, and editorial during the period 1970 through 1982...."

Excerpt

The last three or four decades have witnessed an unquestionable revolution occurring in the area of molecular genetics. Since the 1940's when DNA first was clearly postulated, up to the discovery of the nature of the genetic code in the 1960's when DNA was proved to be a storehouse of genetic information, researchers in genetic engineering have become almost commonplace.

This increasing interest was particularly true in the 1970's, as evidenced by the growth of numerous research centers, both in the United States and abroad. In recent years ethical societies, Federal and State legislature and large segments of the scientific community have paid greater attention to certain recombinant DNA experiments. While the controversial debate still goes on, universities are expanding their research programs and industries are actively working to open new horizons in the manufacture of drugs and vaccines.

As a result of scientific and industrial awareness in the field, there has been a veritable explosion of literature in this new biological area of genetics. Despite the growing public and scientific interest and the sizable amount of literature available, no systematic effort has yet been undertaken to achieve bibliographical control of the subject. The literature appears in widely scattered sources with a confusing variety of subject headings.

The present bibliography is an attempt to bring together the literature directly related to the area of genetic intervention. The period covered is from 1970 up to date, and includes well over 8000 citations from scholarly and popular periodicals, monographs, essays in books, major newspapers and government documents.
