Into the Future

Abstract:
One spring morning in the year 2025, Joe Smith might be tending the begonias when the computer on his wrist receives a message from the gene chip under his skin. The 78-year-old Smith's colorectal cancer is in remission, but its potential to genetically mutate is monitored by the biochip, which is spotted with thousands of molecular markers that bind to DNA fragments containing colon cancer's many known mutations.
