Extreme Genetic Enginering: An Introduction to Synthetic Biology
Publisher: ETC Group 2007
Number of pages: 72
Transgenics, the kind of engineering you find in genetically modified tomatoes and corn, is old news. As recombinant DNA splicing-techniques turn 30 years old, a new generation of extreme biotech enthusiasts have moved to the next frontier in the manipulation of life: building it from scratch.
