Organ Farm - Jenny Bryan, Martin Bashir, John D. Clare
Xenotransplantation; modem miracle or genetic time bomb? With the help of generically modified animals, scientists believe it is possible to transplant pig organs into human bodies, saving thousands of lives every year. But the potential risks are enormous. One transplant could be enough to cause a modern plague as a new disease crosses the species barrier. The authors follow the lives of patients whose lives were transformed when they received pig brain cell implants, and explore the tragic

Gene Cloning: Principles and Applications - Julia Lodge, Peter Lund
The ability to successfully clone genes underlies the majority of our knowledge in molecular and cellular biology. Gene Cloning introduces the diverse array of techniques available to clone genes and how they can be used effectively both in the research laboratory, to gain knowledge about the gene, and for use in biotechnology, medicine, the pharmaceutical industry, and agriculture. It shows how cloning genes is an integral part of genomics and underlines its relevance in the post-genomic age,
