In 2010, scientists led by J. Craig Venter became the first to successfully create 'synthetic life' - putting humankind at the threshold of the most important and exciting phase of biological research, one that will enable us to actually write the genetic code for designing new species to help us adapt and evolve for long-term survival. In 'Life at the Speed of Light', Venter presents a fascinating and authoritative study of this emerging field from the inside - detailing its origins, current challenges and controversies, and projected effects on our lives.
