A geneticist creates a website that pairs an individual with their ideal genetic partner for children
"The Perfect 46 raises disturbing (and critical) questions about the seductive power of technology," comments local author and science writer K.C. Cole, "and features a main character who seems not just believable, but creepily familiar. It is a classic story with a present day twist: what happens when scientific knowledge and technical know-how outrun our limited human ability to predict consequences? Striving for perfection when we have so little idea of what ‘perfect' means can become the road to both societal and personal insanity."
