La Revolución Biotecnológica [Prof. Michio Kaku]

La genética y la biotecnología prometen un futuro sin precedentes en términos de salud y longevidad: el análisis del ADN podría prevenir muchas enfermedades, terapia genética podría curarlas y gracias a los órganos engendrados en laboratorios, reparar el cuerpo humano podría repararse tan sencillo como arreglar un carro. Finalmente, el proceso de envejecer podría ser sosegado o detenido por completo. ¿Qué impacto podría tener esto en nuestra manera de vivir?

Free PDF Book from NAS: On Being a Scientist: A Guide to Responsible Conduct in Research

Free PDF Book from NAS: On Being a Scientist: A Guide to Responsible Conduct in Research | Ciencia, política y Derecho | Scoop.it

Here's a nice introduction to the ethical principles that guide scientists, published in 2009 by the US National Academies of Sciences. You can download the whole book, or just chapters, for example the one on The Treatment of Data, or the one on Authorship. It's very accessible for beginning graduate students or even undergraduates, and includes lots of Case Studies for discussion. 

 

 And here is an accompanying 7 minute video that introduces some of the information discussed in the book: http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=wIBjGV3OB0o

 

Here's an overview of the magnitude of scientific misconduct, from Cell June 2012 http://download.cell.com/pdf/PIIS0092867412006927.pdf
