Chapter 2 examines these changing dynamics, and the scientific and political genealogy of recombinant DNA technology. I argue that recombinant DNA technology derived from particular experimental opportunities, and from commitments to the biology of higher organisms; this occurred in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when molecular biology was experiencing an intellectual and political “crisis.”

Keywords:   recombinant DNA technology, Paul Berg, Peter Lobban, genetic engineering, cancer research, history of molecular biology, research and relevant knowledge, experimental dynamics, history of biomedical research
