BAD SEED, by Richard Lieberman (Author)
Publisher: Eyewear Publishing (April 1, 2019)
Bad Seed, out in late March from Eyewear Publishing, is the first novel to base its plot on genetic engineering in the food industry. Although it is fiction, the author has tried to be as factually accurate as possible in describing current scientific and technological research and knowledge, so that the reader will be immersed in not only an exciting story but also a scientific briefing on this very timely issue. The gene editing techniques that the protagonist uses for her work in the book is real, and the revolutionary biological tool, CRISPR (and all its future refinements) will enable scientists to bring about miraculous improvements to the health and well-being of humankind. At the same time, this new unprecedented power to fundamentally alter the genetic makeup of plants and animals poses immense risks and dangers. Bad Seed enhances this important discussion and debate while it entertains.
