Vergil Ulam has created cellular material that can outperform rats in laboratory tests.
When the authorities rule that he has exceeded his authorization, Vergil loses his job, but is determined to take his discovery with him.
An amazing breakthrough in genetic engineering made by Vergil Ulam is considered too dangerous for further research, but rather than destroy his work, he injects himself with his creation and walks out of his lab, unaware of just how his actions will change the world.
Author Greg Bear’s treatment of the traditional tale of scientific hubris is both suspenseful and a compelling portrait of a new intelligence emerging amongst us, irrevocably changing our world.
