Million-page story of modern genetics launched by the Wellcome Library

Million-page story of modern genetics launched by the Wellcome Library | Eugenics | Scoop.it

The papers of the pioneers of modern genetics - including Francis Crick, James D Watson, Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin - have been collected together for the first time and made freely available in a £3.9 million digitisation project from the Wellcome Library.

 

Codebreakers: Makers of modern genetics, which launches today atwellcomelibrary.org/codebreakers, contains more than one million pages of first-hand notes, letters, sketches, lectures, photographs and essays from the circle of brilliant minds responsible for uncovering the structure of DNA. The site lays bare the personal and professional thoughts, rivalries, blind alleys and breakthroughs of the scientists whose ideas transformed our understanding of the matter of life.

 

Drawing on five partner archives in the USA, London, Cambridge and Glasgow and the Wellcome Library's own holdings, Codebreakers offers an unparalleled and comprehensive primary resource for researchers and curious minds across the world and is launched ahead of the 60th anniversary of Crick and Watson's seminal 'Nature' paper revealing the structure of DNA. It holds the stories behind the discovery, which has shaped our genetic age, from diagnosis to drug development and from forensics to food production, and which lies at the heart of today's biomedical research.

 

The vast collections contain iconic documents - such as Crick's preliminary sketches of the double helix and Franklin's X-ray diffraction 'photo 51' - and everyday exchanges. The biological revolutions of the 1950s and 1960s, together with their legacies in the fields of medical genetics and genomics, are recorded in the scientists' own words and placed in the context of earlier research into the links between heredity and health, including the archives of the Eugenics Society, one of the most influential scientific organisations of the early 20th century.

 

Codebreakers sits within an entirely redesigned Wellcome Library website, and a new media player allows the close reading, downloading and embedding of digitised files. The content is free to all, and users can log in using Library membership, Facebook or Twitter accounts. A timeline and essays on key individuals and research groups offer navigational aids through the records.

 

Codebreakers is a collaborative project, uniting collections from five internationally important centres. Working with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Churchill Archives Centre Cambridge, the University of Glasgow, King's College London and UCL, the digitised papers of James D Watson, Rosalind Franklin, Sydney Brenner, Lionel Penrose, J B S Haldane, Guido Pontecorvo, James Harrison Renwick, Malcolm Ferguson-Smith and Maurice Wilkins have been made available. They join material from the Wellcome Library's own holdings, including the papers of Francis Crick, Fred Sanger, Arthur Ernest Mourant, Peter Medawar, Hans Grüneberg, Honor Fell and Gerard Wyatt.

 

Users exploring the site will find treasures of beauty - such as Honor Fell's minutely observed cell drawings - and import, including richly annotated holographs of key papers and lectures unlocking the secrets of DNA. The archives are full of candid correspondence, keen professional insight and moving personal items, such as Peter Medawar's self-portraits, which were drawn after suffering a stroke.

 

Simon Chaplin, Head of the Wellcome Library says: "Codebreakers reveals the extraordinarily convoluted networks of influence, insight and inspiration that lie behind crucial moments of scientific discovery. It is a project made possible by a creative partnership with five outstanding libraries and archives, sharing a goal of free and open access. Together, our collections offer an extraordinarily rich research resource documenting one of the most significant periods of scientific innovation in human history."

 

The Wellcome Library's Codebreakers project is the first phase of a major digitisation programme that will create integrated online content, featuring digitised books, archives, films, photographs and audio covering every aspect of the history of medicine and biomedical science. A further half million pages will be added to Codebreakers over the next six months, and £5.8 million has been set aside for the next phase of the Library's digitisation plans, which focus on material relating to neurology and mental health. The Library itself is also expanding as part of a £17.5-million development of Wellcome Collection due for completion in summer 2014.

War Against The Weak - Home Page

THE BEST BOOK ON EUGENICS. Edwin Black has written what may well be the best book ever published about the American eugenics movement and the horrific events it spawned. Combining exhaustive research, a very readable style, and just the right touch of moral outrage, Black splendidly conveys the evil depth and breadth of eugenics philosophy, the pseudo-science and social theory that unleashed a half-century of war against society's most vulnerable citizens.
Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:
COMPELLING--THE ZEAL OF AN AVENGER. Investigative journalist Edwin Black compellingly argues that the ethnic-cleansing movement that culminated in Nazi Germany's death camps during World War II was the realization of a particularly ugly American dream. Black, whose mother lived under Nazi rule in Poland, writes here with the zeal of an avenger

ABOUT Terra Nova The New Earth (Spiritual Ascension 5D)

ABOUT Terra Nova The New Earth (Spiritual Ascension 5D) | Eugenics | Scoop.it

Terra Nova Earth was created to assist all humans with the knowledge of the shift of the ages which is happening now. Earth was once a galactic, universal and even a cosmic home. We evolved from a fifth dimensional star
called TARA.

Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:
On the 21st of December 2012 the Earth (Terra as she also known) aligned with the galactic centre. This time is very sacred and rare as what is happening now only happens every few million years and is now at a time where she will once again lift up in frequency to a 5th-dimensional planet. 

Our Earth was once a 5th Dimensional planet in the times of Atlantis and Lumeria. She has also lived in a much higher frequency eons ago. Ultimately Our fall from Grace and dark behaviour was the catalyst for this drop in frequency.

We have reached a point in our evolution where we will all ascend back to this higher state of being. 

This includes upgrades in our human DNA, including the cleansing and reactivating our of 12 strand helix. Much more will start to happen from now until 2017, with many more shifts beyond this time.

Justin Trudeau Says Alberta Foster Care Deaths Shocking, Calls For Change
01/28/2014 06:51 EST | Updated 01/28/2014 07:59 EST
Seema DhawanThe Huffington Post Alberta

CP
Federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau says he is shocked by the high number of children who have died while in the Alberta foster care system and has called on all levels of government to deal with the issue.

In a newly released letter sent to Alberta Liberal Leader Raj Sherman in December, Trudeau noted that the majority of deaths were of Aboriginal children.

"These deaths were preventable, and we must work to ensure that this horrific trend is reversed," he said.

"The alarming rate of deaths among Aboriginal children follows an unfortunate and all-too familiar pattern in our country, and the persistent gap in economic and social conditions for Aboriginal Peoples in Canada simply cannot be allowed to endure."

In November, theAlberta Liberals asked the prime minister for a public inquiry into the deaths of foster children after a series of Postmedia stories revealed that the province covered up the deaths of 89 foster care children since 1999.

"It is the responsibility of all levels of government to work together," said Trudeau.

"This must include ending the funding disparity for Aboriginal Child Welfare agencies, as every child deserves the same level of support, care and equality of opportunity."

Sherman echoed the sentiment, saying "The federal government has a duty to the First Nations."

"The big question is why do we have so many children in government care to begin with," he told The Huffington Post Alberta. He says improving the lives of children so they don't need government care at all is a more holistic and economical approach.

The Alberta government is holding a conference on Tuesday and Wednesday to determine how to publicly report more information on children who die in government care.

"It's a small baby step in the right direction," says Sherman, but says prevention of the deaths isn't part of the discussion.

Alberta's chief medical examiner said on Tuesday that the system was too disconnected when it comes to determining why and how children die in government care.

Dr. Anny Sauvageau said her office needs a broader mandate to examine not only the manner of death, but to propose ways to prevent similar tragedies.

Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:
If a client does not have a defence, or a ‘special reason’ in respect of their allegation of drink driving, then we would still strongly recommend they have professional representation at court to help keep the sentence as low as possible. In particular, the length of a sentence can be reduced greatly. Keep Your Licence are experts at providing the best possible mitigation to reduce the seriousness of the penalty which might be imposed. It is always important to have in mind that in the worst cases, a Court can consider a sentence of imprisonment.

Phoenician alphabet - Wikipedia

Phoenician alphabet - Wikipedia

The Phoenician alphabet, called by convention the Proto-Canaanite alphabet for inscriptions older than around 1050 BC, is the oldest verified alphabet. The Phoenician alphabet is an abjad consisting of 22 letters, all consonants, with matres lectionis used for some vowels in certain late varieties.

Empty description
Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:
The Phoenician alphabet is a direct continuation of the "Proto-Canaanite" script of the Bronze Age collapse period. The so-called Ahiram epitaph, engraved on the sarcophagus of king Ahiram from about 1200 BC, one of five known Byblian royal inscriptions, shows essentially the fully developed Phoenician script,[6] although the name "Phoenician" is by convention given to inscriptions beginning in the mid 11th century BC.[
