Summary

Today’s scientists are radically exceeding the boundaries of evolution and engineering entirely novel creatures. Cutting edge “synthetic biology” may lead to solutions to some of the world’s most pressing crises and pave the way for inventions once relegated to science fiction.

Meanwhile, these advances are shedding new light on the biggest mystery of all—how did life begin? As we come closer and closer to understanding the ancient root that connects all living things, Adam Rutherford shows how we may finally be able to achieve the creation of new life where none existed before.
