Breakthroughs in biotechnology are redefining the very concept of life, transforming society and presenting unprecedented opportunities and challenges: Will human genome sequencing help to treat genetic diseases and indefinitely prolong life? Can nature's workshop inspire superior biomaterials that transform industries? Will genetically modified super crops feed a hungry world? With biotechnology set to be the driving force of the twenty-first century, mastery of the life sciences will be the key to wealth generation and economic ascendancy. Can the Arab world regain its past supremacy in these fields? Can it benefit from the biotech revolution while avoiding its perils? This volume of essays by Jamal S. Al-Suwaidi, Helen Quigley, Andrew Greene and others, examines the complex ethical, legal and social issues raised by the biotech revolution that need to be resolved by governments and decision makers.
