Just 45 years ago, the age of gene modification was born. Researchers could create glow-in-the-dark mice, farmyard animals producing drugs in their milk, and vitamin-enhanced rice that could prevent half a million people going blind every year.

But now GM is rapidly being supplanted by a new system called CRISPR or 'gene editing'. Using this approach, scientists can manipulate the genes of almost any organism with a degree of precision, ease and speed that we could only dream of ten years ago.

But is it ethical to change the genetic material of organisms in a way that might be passed on to future generations? If a person is suffering from a lethal genetic disease, is it even more unethical to deny them this option? Who controls the application of this technology, when it makes 'biohacking' - perhaps of one's own genome - a real possibility?

Nessa Carey's book is a thrilling and timely snapshot of a technology that will radically alter our futures.

Descriere RO Cu doar 45 de ani in urma s-a nascut varsta modificarii genelor. Cercetatorii ar putea crea soareci stralucitori, animale de curte care produc medicamente in laptele lor si orez cu vitamine imbunatatite, care ar putea impiedica o jumatate de milion de oameni sa orbeasca in fiecare an. Dar acum GM este inlocuit rapid de un nou sistem numit CRISPR sau „editarea genelor”.
