About this product
- DescriptionThe advent of recombinant DNA techlogy in the 1970s was a key moment in the history of both biotechlogy and the commercialization of academic research. Doogab Yi's The Recombinant University draws us deeply into the academic community in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the techlogy was developed and adopted as the first major commercial techlogy for genetic engineering. In doing so, it reveals how research patronage, market forces, and legal developments from the late 1960s through the early 1980s influenced the evolution of the techlogy and reshaped the moral and scientific life of biomedical researchers. Bay Area scientists, university administrators, and government officials were fascinated by and increasingly engaged in the ecomic and political opportunities associated with the privatization of academic research. Yi uncovers how the attempts made by Stanford scientists and administrators to demonstrate the relevance of academic research were increasingly mediated by capitalistic conceptions of kwledge, medical invation, and the public interest. The Recombinant University brings to life the hybrid origin story of biotechlogy and the ways the academic culture of science has changed in tandem with the early commercialization of recombinant DNA techlogy.
