A Many-Colored Glass: Reflections on the Place of Life in the Universe

Freeman Dyson’s most recent publication doesn't try to compile all the celebrated physicist’s concepts on technological know-how and know-how right into a unified idea. The emphasis is, as an alternative, at the myriad ways that the universe provides itself to us--and how, as observers and individuals in its approaches, we reply to it.

Sample text

Some of the recombined plasmids linked bacteria DNA-to-bacteria DNA, but others linked bacteria-to-toad DNA. The scientists then added bacterial cells to the mix and waited for some of them to take up the recombined plasmids. The cells that had recombinant DNA were easy to identify because they now had the new characteristic of antibiotic resistance, introduced by the plasmids. On further examination, Boyer and Cohen found that some of these cells also contained toad DNA, joined into the plasmid.

In the years since Dolly’s birth, scientists have cloned other sheep as well as mice, pigs, goats, cattle, cats, and deer from adult cells. Although time and experience have made researchers more successful at cloning mammals, the technique is by no means straightforward. Dolly was the only lamb born from 277 attempts at cell fusion, and the success rate for producing live, healthy offspring from adult mammalian cells still stands at around only two percent. Dolly eventually died in February 2003 at the age of six, about one-half the normal life span for her breed.

Many bacterial cells also include a few much smaller, independent circles of DNA called plasmids. These freewheeling circles of genetic material can readily pass from one cell into another, offering scientists a key tool for transferring genes between species. Gene transfer is something that occurs normally among bacteria and is carried out by a number of different processes. In one of these, called transformation, DNA is released from bacterial cells into the surrounding medium, then taken up and incorporated into the DNA of nearby cells.
