Futurist vs. Geneticist: Hacking Genes Like Software - Data Makes Possible

The geneticist is a person who, as a specialist in microbiology, carries out research on the phenomena of heredity in living organisms (animals, plants, humans, microorganisms, etc.) and on the genetic composition of these organisms.For this, the geneticist analyzes and determines the hereditary characteristics, the properties of genes and performs experiments on animal and plant species in order to improve the species. He strives to identify similarities and differences, to find biochemical and physiological means to recognize them and to better understand heredity. Genetics can be combined with other disciplines: demography, agri-food ( for example the development of transgenic maize), criminology (genetic fingerprints) …
