“We are currently experiencing a revolution in genetic engineering: CRISPR/Cas gene editing tools are used to modify the genetic material of living organisms in a more targeted way than ever before. These tools offer new possibilities in animal and plant breeding - and are already being used in humans.

Where should the journey lead? Should we treat diseases or better repair them? Will the new genetic engineering, combined with modern reproductive biology, lead to designer babies? And: May we allow a liberalization of these techniques as citizen science? With the availability of genetic scissors, we face a great responsibility: Is it acceptable to use the new genetic technologies - or reprehensible not to use them? Where do we draw the line?

Aimed at interested readers, the author explains in a clear and understandable way the background of breeding, the use of genetic engineering, and the possibilities of the gene editing. In addition, he spans a broad chronological arc from the genes of our ancestors to the fabrication of new living beings.What is your opinion of these developments?

Readers' opinions about Genes, Genomes and Society by Röbbe Wünschiers

The world created in this book was unlike anything I've ever encountered. The author's imagination knows no bounds, and I was completely mesmerized by the fantastical setting.

The plot was incredibly well-crafted, with twists and turns that kept me hooked until the very last page. It was impossible to predict what would happen next.

I couldn't stop raving about this book to my friends and family. It's a literary gem that deserves all the praise. I can't wait to dive into more works by this talented author.
