Product Description

Matti Leisola & Jonathan Witt

What happens when an up-and-coming European bioscientist flips from Darwin disciple to Darwin defector? Sparks fly. Just ask biotechnologist Matti Leisola. It all started when a student loaned the Finnish scientist a book criticizing evolutionary theory. Leisola reacted angrily, and set out to defend evolution, but found his efforts raised more questions than they answered. He soon morphed into a full-on Darwin skeptic, even as he was on his way to becoming a leading bioengineer.

This is the story of his adventures making waves--and many friends and enemies--at major research labs and universities across Europe. This book draws on Leisola's expertise in molecular biology to show how the evidence points more strongly than ever to the original biotechnologist--a designing intelligence whose skill and reach dwarf those of even our finest bioengineers, and leave blind evolution in the dust.
