    Cloning, too, is a familiar plot device. Aldous Huxley's dystopian novel Brave New World imagines the in vitro cloning of fertilised human eggs. Huxley was influenced by J. B. S. Haldane's non-fiction book Daedalus; or, Science and the Future, which used the Greek myth of Daedalus to symbolise the coming revolution in genetics; Haldane predicted that humans would control their own.   Book of life? Hosanna! The Human Genome Project has been completed. We will now cure diseases, weed out defective genes and create a new supergeneration in the near future.

      Genetic engineering techniques have also been used in the direct genetic alteration of livestock and laboratory animals (see pharming). In scientists at the Scripps Research Institute created genetically engineered Escherichia coli bacteria that included a pair of synthetic nucleotides, or DNA bases, in its genetic code. The idea of using gene therapy to treat the haemoglobinopathies (thalassaemia and sickle cell disease) is, in principle, straightforward. Red blood cells (RBC) are continuously replenished by bone marrow haematopoietic stem cells (HSC). Therefore, the stable transfer of a normal functioning copy of a β-globin therapy gene unit into the patient’s own HSC would result in the generation of Author: Maria-Domenica Cappellini, Alan Cohen, Androulla Eleftheriou, Antonio Piga, John Porter, Ali Taher.
