Susan Hockfield's book, The Age of Living Machines has officially hit the bookshelves. Offering a glimpse into a possible future driven by the convergence of biology and engineering, Hockfield describes how researchers at the KI, MIT, and beyond are assembling the "biological parts list" developed from 20th-century revelations in molecular biology and genetics into a stunning array of "living machines" to solve some of the most important—and difficult—challenges of the 21st century.
