Im Fokus: Genetik: Dem Bauplan des Lebens auf der Spur by Nadja Podbregar,Dieter Lohmann

By Nadja Podbregar,Dieter Lohmann

Welche Macht haben unsere Gene? Sind sie die schicksalhafte Blaupause, die bestimmt, wie clever, wie alt oder wie schön wir sind? Lange Zeit warfare dies die gängige Lehrmeinung. Doch das Dogma ihrer monolithischen Allmacht ist heute längst gefallen. Immer häufiger stoßen Forscher auf Hinweise, wie unser Leben den Genen „ins Handwerk“ pfuscht und wie eng die Wechselwirkungen zwischen Erbgut, Stoffwechsel und Umwelt manchmal sind. Die moderne Biotechnologie eröffnet neue Wege der Forschung, wirft aber auch ethische und gesellschaftliche Fragen auf. Dieses Buch erklärt unter anderem, warum bei den Genen die Verpackung manchmal wichtiger ist als der Inhalt, used to be Viren in unserem Erbgut verloren haben und weshalb es „das Methusalem-Gen“ nicht gibt.
