10% Human: How Your Body's Microbes Hold the Key to Health and Happiness

You're simply 10% human. for each one of many cells that make up the vessel that you just name your physique, there are 9 impostor cells hitching a journey. you're not simply flesh and blood, muscle and bone, mind and pores and skin, but additionally micro organism and fungi. Over your lifetime, you are going to hold the similar weight of 5 African elephants in microbes.

Rosalind Franklin: The Dark Lady of DNA

In 1962, Maurice Wilkins, Francis Crick, and James Watson obtained the Nobel Prize, however it was once Rosalind Franklin's info and images of DNA that ended in their discovery. Brenda Maddox tells a strong tale of a remarkably single-minded, forthright, and tempestuous younger girl who, on the age of fifteen, determined she used to be going to be a scientist, yet who used to be airbrushed out of the best medical discovery of the 20th century.

Contemporary advances within the fields of drugs and expertise have resulted in the improvement of stem telephone treatment. A stem mobilephone is a cellphone that has the capability to become many differing types of mobile within the physique. It has the power to divide and replica itself and not less than another really good kind of cellphone.

The Darwinian Tourist: Viewing the World Through Evolutionary Eyes
