This report is primarily concerned with the consequences of genetic engineering interventions into evolutionary
processes. Leading scientists working in the field of ‘new’ genetic engineering are already talking about the ‘end
of the beginning’ (George Church, 2012): in future, new life forms will no longer evolve from natural processes
of self-reproduction and self-organisation, they will, instead, be designed by scientists. New genetic engineering
technologies, such as the CRISPR/Cas gene scissors, are set to play an important role in this development.
