In laboratories all over the world, life even the idea of life is changing. And with these changes, whether they result in square tomatoes or cyborgs, come transformations in our social order - sometimes welcome, sometimes troubling, depending on where we stand. This text offers a close look at how the mutable forms and concepts of life link the processes of science to those of information, finance, and commodities.
