Designer Animals is an in-depth learn of the debates surrounding the improvement of animal biotechnology, that's quick rising out of the laboratory and into the economic industry. This publication innovatively combines professional research at the technology's financial, specialist, moral, and spiritual implications whereas last firmly grounded within the 'real global' political surroundings within which the problem is performed out.
Designer Animals makes use of non-technical language to discover the technological know-how in the back of animal biotechnology and the moral frameworks at play in its surrounding debates. through investigating the pursuits of significant stakeholders, together with researchers at the innovative of technology; mainstream and 'alternative' agriculture corporations; the animal welfare move; and health and wellbeing care services, sufferers, and researchers, the participants remove darkness from an important issues of contract and confrontation in this hotly contested topic.
