Summary:
Recent scientific breakthroughs mean that we no longer have to wait 3 billion years for organisms to evolve - we can build them ourselves in the lab. Nature is being dismantled into a series of 'spare parts' that we have the potential to engineer, refine, and rebuild into whatever we see fit. As nature becomes a toolkit, our view of the world around us has to change. But can this life-from-the-laboratory provide real benefits for us and our environment? Or is it a Frankenstein science with more dangers than benefits? Adam Rutherford is on a mission to find out.
