Increasing Physical Capacity: Soldiers & Gene Modification


Article Title

The Real Captain America: Bioengineering the Super Soldiers of Tomorrow.

Extract

“With the rapidly advancing field of genomics and gene modification, the distinct possibility has arisen for applying these technologies to enhance a soldier’s physical capacity. Genetic modification or “’gene doping’, already banned from its possible future use in the Olympics, has many further applications that could enhance the operational performance of soldiers. Conceptual frameworks illuminate the ‘realm of the possible’ which, if implemented, could in reality realize the much fabled concept of the ‘super soldier’.”
