"Intended for a general audience of professional biologists, an interested public, and university students of both the humanities and the sciences, this book uses simple but evocative language to explain the histories, techniques, goals, successes, and failures of more than fifty of the most compelling stories in genetic engineering. Having no vested interest in favor of (or against) the field, the author is in an unusual position to offer objective assessments of various GM projects and thereby stimulate critical thought and discussion among readers. If you want to know more about the transgenic items on your dinner table, how barnyard animals are being cloned for pharmaceuticals and foods, how wild creatures from mosquitoes to endangered species are being genetically modified, or what genetic engineering holds for the future of medicine and the human species, you need to read this book."--BOOK JACKET.
