Description

Information and subscription on http://www.usievents.com There used to be two determinants of what lived and died: natural selection and random mutation. Over the last century or two, and especially over the last decade, humans fundamentally altered these rules. As we practice extreme human intervention and alter the course of natural selection we create a parallel evolutionary track, one whose rules and outcomes depend on what we want. We don't just choose how to breed but how to rewrite the code of life itself. The biggest story of the next few centuries will be how we redesign life forms, spread new ones, develop approaches and knowledge to further push the boundaries of what lives where. Life is expanding and diverging. Follow USI on Twitter: https://twitter.com/USIEvents Follow USI on LinkedIn: http://linkd.in/13Ls21Y Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/19sPpSp
