              Hacking the Code of Life: How Gene Editing Will Rewrite Our Futures (Audio CD / Audio, Unabridged)

              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 supplan...ted 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.
