Bad Seed is the story of Aurora Blanc, a young and brilliant Stanford science student who, by genetically enhancing the corn fed to cattle, engineers “Healthy Heart” beef. Her path takes her from poverty to billionaire icon; she is beautiful, emotionally distant and ice-cold in her pursuit of scientific and business perfection. But her work on the corn seed is not entirely her own and her attempts to maintain control begin to slip from her grasp. A literary work that encompasses today’s momentous concerns arising from cutting edge GMO science, this is a unique and important book.
