Overview

In the age of global biotechnology, DNA can exist as biological material in a test tube, as a sequence in a computer database, and as economically valuable information in a patent. In The Global Genome, Eugene Thacker asks us to consider the relationship of these three entities and argues that - by their existence and their interrelationships - they are fundamentally redefining the notion of biological "life itself."

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

"An analytical and theoretical tour de force. The Global Genome is that rare thing: a book that combines a confident knowledge of biotechnology with a sharp eye for theory, with pyrotechnic results. Thacker maps a biopolitical economy of recombinant capital, biomaterial labor,
technologies, biowar, and colonialism, a construct that wreaks havoc on our understanding of what a body is, what it can do, and what it can be made to do in the age of biotechnology. An eye-opener for the non-expert, and an essential contribution for researchers and students." Tiziana Terranova,
Department of Sociology, University at Essex
