 About the Book 

Recent developments in biotechnology and genetic research are raising complex ethical questions concerning the legitimate scope and limits of genetic intervention. As we begin to contemplate the possibility of intervening in the human genome to prevent diseases, we cannot help but feel that the human species might soon be able to take its biological evolution in its own hands. Playing God is the metaphor commonly used for this self-transformation of the species, which, it seems, might soon be within our grasp.
