Book Description:
Biotechnological innovations in the past 30 years have raised many questions about how we can reap the benefits of transformative science and technology through responsible and sustainable use. Biotechnology has the potential both for better or worse to enhance, undercut or change as much as 40% of the world’s economy, to fundamentally alter our relationship with nature and to question our sense of self.
