New book expo: "Frankenstein'­s Cat: Cuddling Up to Biotech's Brave New Beasts"

"From fruitflies to white mice, animals have long been on the front lines of scientific research. In her second book, Anthes, a science journalist and author of Instant Egghead Guide: The Mind looks closely at animal biotechnology, considering what cloning, genetic engineering, and the resurrection of extinct species from surviving DNA could mean for both animals and humans."

    This seems really interesting. There are a few members of our biohacking group (at HacDC) who are interested in doing animal work. The ethical implications of this are muddy (to say the least).

    In any case, it seems like this book will be especially relevant when "cloning, genetic engineering, and the resurrection of extinct species from surviving DNA" as well as more mundane animal experimentation isn't just limited to large, well-regulated labs.

    I am not sure if I can make it; but I hope that I can. Count my 'yes' as a 'hopefully'. Will there be a sign for DC Futurists for pre/post conversation?
