RESUMO

The aggressive exploration of genetics and bioengineering is warranted not just because of the huge potential for positive benefit for humanity, but also because the work informs in important ways our sense of place in the universe. Synthetic biology is an example of just the kind of power that cutting edge research in the biological sciences exerts on the worldview we hold as to our place in nature and the nature of life itself.
