Dear Dr. Mukerjee,

Thanks for the great update on what's going on in the genetics business. Just another reason for me to encourage my daughter to consider a career in biology or cellular biology or evolutionary biology. As we turn our attention to the little world under the microscope we see even more variety and complexity than we could have imagined....even 30 years ago. I couldn't agree with you more that I should be a little worried that scientists are plowing ahead with experiments genetically altering human embryos and accidentally creating unexpected mutations. While we learn more about genes influencing specific diseases these relationships are rarely one-to-one, have relationships contingent on the environment, and generally don't lend themselves to, ahem, cut-and-paste. I want to believe that gene therapy will yield big dividends for human health, reducing misery in the world, and promoting long useful lives. Genes, like leaves of grass, have a much longer evolutionary life than do humans. Bacteria, viruses also have been fighting the good fight for survival much, much longer than humans. And so I think fruitful to ask again, to what degree are we the masters of our fate, even when we monkey with the gene pool? I'll be staying up late nights to ponder that conundrum.… (mere)

Un libro magnifico y maravilloso, una historia (del gen) impresionante, contada de una forma simplemente magistral. Después de leer este libro cambia (o reafirma) tu forma de ver la vida. Disfrute tanto leerlo!! (cuanto me hubiera gustado podérselo recomendar a mi padre para platicar/comentarlo con el).
