Gene Editing: Controlling Evolution. Not since the atomic bomb has a technology so alarmed its inventors that they warned the world about its use. Not, that is, until the spring of 2015, when biologist Jennifer Doudna called for a worldwide moratorium on the use of the new gene-editing tool CRISPR--a revolutionary new technology that she helped create--to make heritable changes in human embryos. Writing with fellow researcher Samuel Sternberg, Doudna shares the thrilling story of her discovery in "A Crack in Creation: Gene Editing and the Unthinkable Power to Control Evolution."
