One Plus One Equals One: Symbiosis and the evolution of by John Archibald

By John Archibald

We're in the course of a revolution. it's a clinical revolution outfitted upon the instruments of molecular biology, with which we probe and prod the residing global in methods unbelievable a couple of a long time in the past. have to song a bacterium on the root of a clinic outbreak? No challenge: the offending germ's whole genetic profile will be bought in 24 hours. We insert human DNA into E. coli micro organism to supply our insulin.

It is ordinary to examine biotechnology within the twenty first century with a mixture of ask yourself and worry. yet biotechnology isn't really as 'unnatural' as one may possibly imagine. All dwelling organisms use an identical molecular tactics to duplicate their genetic fabric and a similar simple code to 'read' their genes. The similarities may be noticeable of their DNA. right here, John Archibald exhibits how evolution has been 'plugging-and-playing' with the subcellular elements of lifestyles from the very starting and keeps to take action this present day. For facts, we'd like glance no additional than the internal workings of our personal cells. Molecular biology has allowed us to gaze again greater than 3 billion years, revealing the microbial mergers and acquisitions that underpin the advance of advanced lifestyles. One Plus One Equals One tells the tale of ways we've come to this cognizance and its implications.

Das Phänomen Leben: Grundfragen der Theoretischen Biologie by Heinz Penzlin

By Heinz Penzlin

Der renommierte Tierphysiologe Heinz Penzlin bespricht in einem umfassenden Überblick die Einzigartigkeit lebendiger Systeme in unserer Welt. Bestimmte Stoffe und ein thermodynamisch offener Charakter der Systeme fernab vom Gleichgewicht sind zwar notwendige, aber noch keineswegs hinreichende Bedingungen für die Existenz von „Leben“. Lebendige Systeme unterscheiden sich von anorganischen nicht darin, dass sie eine andere Physik und Chemie oder einen zusätzlichen „Faktor“ besitzen, sondern darin, dass sie eine interne supplier verkörpern und selbsttätig aufrechterhalten, die nicht nur umfangreiche Stoff- und Energieumsätze, sondern auch komplexe Informationstransfers erfordert.

Gegenstand dieser Übersicht zu den Grundlagen der Theoretischen Biologie sind die Prinzipien und Gesetzmäßigkeiten, die alle Lebewesen - trotz ihrer enormen Formenvielfalt – gleichermaßen kennzeichnen.
