Overview

We live in an age of superhero movies, where scrawny young men go into a machine and come out super soldiers. But we also are in a time of amazing technological and medical advancements that now make the idea of a real-life Captain America not so far-fetched. CRISPR is a region of repeated DNA in bacteria that, according to new research, has wild possibilities for improving our lives. From eliminating diseases to helping us create healthier food, this new opportunity can help us do it all.

This is what you'll learn about in A Crack in Creation: Gene Editing and the Unthinkable Power to Control Evolution. You're going to be blown away by some of the amazing genetic advances that author Jennifer Doudna's research may allow.
