Biologist and science historian Nicolas Rasmussen delicately unravels the tangled fibres of discovery, entrepreneurship and lab life in the first decades of genetic engineering... An engaging, ultimately elegiac tale of lost innocence, as researchers struggle with the angel of the search for truth on one shoulder, and the devil of wealth and fame on the other. -- Nathaniel Comfort Nature This provides an engrossing blend of technical survey and business history reconmmended for science and business collections alike! Midwest Book Review An engaging, informative work appropriate for general readers and beginning students of molecular biology or biotechnology. Choice Gene Jockeys deftly conveys a sense of the excitement and technical challenges of this time when free-wheeling scientists pursued their passions in newly evolving commercial settings. -- Jonathan Khan Journal of American History Scholars generally should appreciate Rasmussen's careful research and the wide sweep of source material that he references in extensive notes. -- Sally Smith Hughes Social History of Medicine Rasmussen achieves admirably what he sets out to accomplish... Gene Jockeys will be the go-to source on the history of the biotech industry for some time to come, and particularly regarding the scientific and legal developments on which that industry's growth rested. -- Elizabeth Popp Berman American Historical Review Rasmussen's book deserves to be read by business historians, historians of science, journalists, and anyone who wants to better understand the early days of genetic engineering through the days of investor hype to the absorption of small biotech experiments by much greater entities. Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Overall, Gene Jockeys is an impressive book that brings together many known, but scattered, narratives with a new frame of reference... Any scholars interested in the history of early biotechnology will find Gene Jockeys essential reading. Journal of the History of Biology It should be emphasized that although Gene Jockeys productively complements other historical accounts of biotech, the book also stands on its own quite well. Rasmussen's account owes much of its usefulness to his creativity and care in supporting his claims by drawing from the scientific literature, oral histories, and especially legal documents. Isis

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Gene Jockeys is a fascinating story of the emerging biotech industry of the 1980s and 90s. Rasmussen traces the windy path toward initial triumphs such as erythropoietin (EPO), biotech’s blockbuster drug. Starting with bags of Japanese urine in Chicago the quest for EPO crosses boundaries between universities and corporations involving both public and private investment as Gene Jockeys battled for the prize. This book will transfix anyone with a career interest in molecular biology but at the same time is a must read for business people. Rasmussen dissects both the science and the drug business. The pitfalls and mishaps experienced in grasping for emerging biotech’s “low hanging fruit” are lessons that scientists, businessmen, and investors can all learn from the Gene Jockey story. Rasmussen’s book is short, hard hitting, and technically sound. A must read for anyone who wants in on biotech.

Many parts of the text seem accurate but others reflect only the recollections of those that were interviewed who I suspect all maintained a bit of their axes to grind.
