Book Description

Are you literate enough in the codes of life, of reading and writing DNA?
And should you be hacking your own biology?

This book explains why it is about time you hacked your own DNA and shows how the recent developments in genetics and genomics enable you to understand your personal biology. The benefits of bio-hacking yourself range from personalized medicine for your quantified self to looking into your ancient past to trace your personal ancestors to get to know yourself better.

Is it possible for you to evolve quicker than nature intended and can you be intentionally creating genetically superior children by design? In a slightly futuristic scenario, can you live healthily (and happily) ever after by hacking your genome and connectome, and then re-booting your genome with your connectome again and again?

And how would you cope with a newer version of bio-hacking crimes that could result as a consequence of an open-source DNA-hacking environment? What safety measure or policy exits, if any, to protect your 'wetware' from such threats?

Besides addressing these questions, the book also guides you into the ways to access your own genetic codes in layperson terminology. Find out more...

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing read 9 April 2013
By VK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was hooked by the title, and was amazed to learn that bio-hacking has been the trend for these past couple of years.
The sujbect matter was built up in quite a frenzy manner from the basics to exciting avenues, to probable disastrous crisis and ended up on a promising note, just like a fiction book.
Had to go thru it in one sitting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating topic 21 April 2013
By Andy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For a layperson, a very insightful reading into complex topics like genetics and synthetic biology, particularly those like me who have almost no prior exposure to even school biology. Besides being easy and entertaining to read, the book has also suddenly piqued my curiosity into DIY bio-hacking movement of which I was completely unaware of so far.
