            In The Genome Odyssey, Dr. Euan Ashley, Stanford professor of medicine and genetics, brings the breakthroughs of precision medicine to vivid life through the real diagnostic journeys of his patients and the tireless efforts of his fellow doctors and scientists as they hunt to pre...vent, predict, and beat disease. Since the Human Genome Project was completed in 2003, the price of genome sequencing has dropped at a staggering rate. It's as if the price of a Ferrari went from $350,000 to a mere forty cents. Through breakthroughs made by Dr. Ashley's team at Stanford and other dedicated groups around the world, analyzing the human genome has decreased from a heroic multibillion dollar effort to a single clinical test costing less than $1,000. For the first time we have within our grasp the ability to predict our genetic future, to diagnose and prevent disease before it begins, and to decode what it really means to be human. In The Genome Odyssey, Dr. Ashley details the medicine behind genome sequencing with clarity and accessibility. More than that, with passion for his subject and compassion for his patients, he introduces readers to the dynamic group of researchers and doctor detectives who hunt for answers, and to the pioneering patients who open up their lives to the medical community during their search for diagnoses and cures. He describes how he led the team that was the first to analyze and interpret a complete human genome, how they broke genome speed records to diagnose and treat a newborn baby girl whose heart stopped five times on the first day of her life, and how they found a boy with tumors growing inside his heart and traced the cause to a missing piece of his genome. These patients inspire Dr. Ashley and his team as they work to expand the boundaries of our medical capabilities and to envision a future where genome sequencing is available for all, where medicine can be tailored to treat specific diseases and to decode pathogens like viruses at the genomic

            The inalienable right to have children is a cornerstone to western societies, and yet for many people, surrogacy remains their only option. This important new book explores this highly contested area through a critical psychology perspective, discussing the many socio-cultural is...sues and health concerns faced by surrogates, prospective parents and clinical providers. Including empirical research conducted by the authors with both heterosexual and homosexual couples, this is the first book to look holistically and cross-culturally at this provocative topic, and will be of interested to students and researchers within health psychology, gender studies and social work.

            An anthropologist visits the frontiers of the next scientific revolution to ask- whose values are guiding gene editing experiments, and what are the implications for humanity? At a conference in Hong Kong in November 2018, Dr He Jiankui announced that he had created the first gen...etically modified babies - twin girls named Lulu and Nana - sending shockwaves around the world. A year later, a Chinese court sentenced Dr He to three years in prison for 'illegal medical practice'. As scientists elsewhere start to catch up with China's vast genetic research program, gene editing is fuelling an innovation economy that threatens to widen racial and economic inequality. Fundamental questions about science, health and social justice are at stake. Who gets access to gene editing technologies? As countries around the globe, from the United States to Indonesia, loosen regulations, can we shape research agendas to promote an ethical and fair society? In The Mutant Project, Eben Kirksey takes us on a groundbreaking journey to meet the key scientists, lobbyists and entrepreneurs who are bringing cutting-edge genetic modification tools like CRISPR to your local clinic. He also ventures beyond the scientific echo chamber, talking to disabled scholars, doctors, hackers, activists and chronically ill patients who have alternative visions of a future shaped by genetic engineering.
