Creation: the origin and the future of life
After four billion years of evolution, and a century of taking cells apart to find out how they work, we have a pretty robust understanding of DNA, evolution and the mechanics of life. Now, we are just beginning to put them back together to do two things: recreate the origin of life, and invent new lifeforms to kickstart a global industrial revolution.
