This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In this eye-popping tour of the new biological frontier, Nina Tandon and Mitchell Joachim describe the tantalizing array of inventions already being created with nature’s elemental building block: the cell. Imagine personalized bone replacements, living condominium complexes, bacteria-made haute couture, and top sirloin grown without a farm. Tandon and Joachim, daring inventors in their own right, contend that we’re entering a new technological revolution, one in which we can create smarter technologies by making cells our partners in design. And they confront the thorny questions that come with playing with the power of life.
