Summary
"In the age of global biotechnology, DNA can exist as biological material in a test tube, as a sequence in a computer database, and as economically valuable information in a patent. In The Global Genome, Eugene Thacker asks us to consider the relationship of these three entities and argues that - by their existence and their interrelationships - they are fundamentally redefining the notion of biological "life itself.""--Jacket
