Description
Information
Can life exist without genes? What will living things be like in the future and how did life evolve in the first place? Taking us beyond biology and genes, this book will change our view of the future forever. Might giraffes grow taller than skyscrapers? How could crocodiles stay underwater for more than an hour? Is it possible to turn a tiger into a porcupine? This uniquely accessible work of science takes us on a swirling Peter Pan-like trip through our own genes, showing us the full scope and perils of genetic engineering. It presents a truly starting vision of a future where the consequences of our current genetic experiments turn out to be both stranger and more foreign than we ever imagined.
