I’m an optimist about science and the future. But some people are not so optimist, or at least focus on negative possibilities. An open access article from Science provides a pretty good set of hypothetical future books/films that might be as groundbreaking as was Frankenstein. Gene editing plainly has plenty of people thinking about ill-intended purposes.
