Would you change your genes if you could? As we confront the
'industrial revolution of the genome', the recent discoveries of
Crispr-Cas9 technologies are offering, for the first time, cheap
and effective methods for editing the human genome. This opens up
startling new opportunities as well as significant ethical
uncertainty. Tracing events across a fifty-year period, from the
first gene splicing techniques to the present day, this is the
story of gene editing - the science, the impact and the potential.
Kozubek weaves together the fascinating stories of many of the
scientists involved in the development of gene editing technology.
Along the way, he demystifies how the technology really works and
provides vivid and thought-provoking reflections on the continuing
ethical debate. This updated paperback edition contains all the
very latest on the patent battle over Crisp and the applications of
Crispr technology in agriculture and medicine.
