Modern Biology: A Terrifying Power
Description:
In this article for a popular audience, Luria discussed the implications of biological advances that could soon allow people to directly manipulate their own heredity. Here he examined the medical, bio-industrial, social, and military applications and implications of "expected developments" in modern biology, including gene manipulation, "genetic surgery," and human cloning.
