Technological advances in molecular biology could help fix the planet.
- Genomics is the study of genes and their functions. The branch of molecular biology presents the idea that the genome can be manipulated for added resilience against harm.
- Yale professor and editor Daniel C. Esty argues that genetic modification in nature as a way to improve sustainability should be seriously considered.
- In the book A Better Planet: Forty Big Ideas for a Sustainable Future, Esty and several authors offer actionable solutions for dealing with greenhouse gases, including genomic intervention in nature.
Granted, genetic manipulation has been a dream for decades. Here’s what is different now.
Despite doubts from the healthcare industry, Watson recently identified a surprisingly high number of potential cancer treatments for real-life patients.
Researchers at Human Longevity have developed technology that can generate images of individuals face using only their genetic information. But not all are convinced.
What if a computer could generate a realistic image of your face using only your genetic information?
