It turns out a new world hierarchy is developing, one that separates those nations and regions that are bioliterate from those that are bio-illiterate. This is the world of DNA space, populated by a self-selecting few who have chosen to participate in the new technology revolution.

This means that even as biodata begins to drive industries from agribusiness to computing, cosmetics to chemical manufacturing, few nations have the skills required to develop, access, and use it.
