Silicon chips are out. Today’s scientists are using real, wet, squishy, living biology to build the next generation of computers. Cells, gels and DNA strands are the ‘wetware’ of the twenty-first century. Much smaller and more intelligent, these organic computers open up revolutionary possibilities.

Tracing the history of computing and revealing a brave new world to come, Genesis Machines describes how this new technology will change the way we think not just about computers – but about life itself.
