Críticas:

"Science News""Reading the first book penned by Church, a Harvard biologist and polymath, is like falling down a rabbit hole straight into his fermenting brain. Church's wide-ranging career includes developing novel methods for reading the genetic instruction manual, or genome, of creatures from bacteria to humans. Now he focuses on synthesizing those instructions from scratch.... [A] dizzying survey of how scientists have unearthed the secrets of living organisms and are now using that information to revamp life itself." Robert T. Gonzalez, io9"[A] phenomenal read." "Wall Street Journal""A definitive account of the advances and business ventures that define this new science [of synthetic biology].... When history is written centuries from now, it is more likely that writing DNA will be the most enduring innovation [of our age]." "New Scientist""Bold and provocative... Church and Regis offer a behind-the-scenes look at synthetic biology, a rapidly emerging field that is reprogramming the genetic code to create organisms and functions not found in nature. "Regenesis" tells of recent advances that may soon yield endless supplies of renewable energy, increased longevity and the return of long-extinct species." "Nature""The life sciences emerge as the new high-tech in this paean to synthetic biology.... Each step in the genome's evolution serves as a springboard for expositions of how synthetic biology will revolutionize renewable energy, multivirus resistance, and more." Mike Loukides, "O'Reilly Radar""If there's one book that can turn this movement into a full-blown revolution, this is it." Derek Jacoby, "O'Reilly Radar""George Church and Ed Regis pull off an exciting and speculative romp through the field of synthetic biology and where it could take us in the not too distant future.... "Regenesis" provides an accessible and engaging introduction to the revolutionary potentials of synthetic biologys

Reseña del editor:

"Bold and provocative...Regenesis tells of recent advances that may soon yield endless supplies of renewable energy, increased longevity and the return of long-extinct species."--New Scientist In Regenesis, Harvard biologist George Church and science writer Ed Regis explore the possibilities--and perils--of the emerging field of synthetic biology. Synthetic biology, in which living organisms are selectively altered by modifying substantial portions of their genomes, allows for the creation of entirely new species of organisms. These technologies--far from the out-of-control nightmare depicted in science fiction--have the power to improve human and animal health, increase our intelligence, enhance our memory, and even extend our life span. A breathtaking look at the potential of this world-changing technology, Regenesis is nothing less than a guide to the future of life.
