Book summary

Recent radical developments in genetics focus on a revolutionary new type of "synthetic" biology, which aims not just to understand how living things work, but to build them from scratch. At the same time, new research shows that Neanderthal man was a distinct type of humanbut not our ancestor. The DNA record is an imperfect time machine but it can help reconstruct our pastand, almost inevitable, shape our future, as mankind will almost certainly soon be able to redesign itself. But how will such work be guided? What is needed is a manifesto for life, which acclaimed author Adrian Woolfson delivers in An Intelligent Persons Guide to Genetics, his examination of life and its future possibilities. [via]
