Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THI LETHBRIDGE HERALD August 1973 JVO LONGER Genetics has lost some of its magic By ROBERT RE1NHOLD New York Times Service Calif. Gene- tics the reigning queen of the life sciences for the last gener- ation seems to be losing its magic. In the years since the Second World the science of gene- tics has penetrated to the very core of revealing the most fundamental chemical secrets of heredity. It has thrust the human race headlong and un- prepared into a new biological epoch that has given man the tools to alter the course of his after he had been buffeted only by the gentle forces of natural selection for 2 million years. having solved the tough- est many of the great scientific muids that had rushed into genetics are now moving on to explore the brain and other new scientific fron- tiers. is kind of said Gunthur S. the sci- entist philosopher at the Uni- versity of California. problems -we were interested in have been solved so it is not so interesting any For the who want to measure themselves against the impossible this is not such a good field It was a judgment that would probably grate on most of the geneticists and biochem- ists from 70 countries who have converged on the Berkely cam- pus for the 13th international Congress of which ended today. They chattered animatedly about such esoteric matters as reverse transcrip- chromosome inactivation -and DNA repair. But there was something missing. When the geneticists last met five years ago in they were riding the crest of a .great wave of excitement. The genetic the biochemical system by which the genetic blueprint received by every or- ganism is translated into tan- gible had just been cracked. scientists had discov- ered the structure of the mas- ter molecule in the chromo- somes that controls all life the spiral shaped substance called Bepxyribpnucleic or in which the genetic information is stored with math- ematical precision. The air was full of heady talk about tinker- ing with the human genetic en- downment to cure disease and possibly to improve the species. But today the goals of gene- tics seem much less well de- fined. The participants came here knowing that they would hear nothing very new or very such as the announce- ment by H. J. Muller at the Fifth International Congrsss of Genetics in 1927 in Berlin that he had or mu- the genetic material vyith x-rays. It was the first time man had wilfully atlered the stuff of heredity. That is not to say that noth- ing remains to be done in gene- tics. Decades of demanding work lie ahead to fill in the gaps in to extend the hereditary principles eluci- dated in bacteria to the more complex higher to apply the new knowledge to ag- riculture and to cure such dreaded conditions as cancer and mental retadation. this congress spon- sored by the International Gen- etics Federation was the largest held since the origin of the meetings in 1899. About 500 more scientists than had been expected showed and the organizers ran out of pro- guides and even name- card holders long before the last had registered. Particularly well represented were the Japanese and the Rus- who came in substantial numbers for the first time since the demise of ths biological doc- trine of Lysenkoism which had decimated their ranks during the Stalin years. many participants agreed that the hurdles before them now were more techni- cal than conceptual.
