7. Epilogue: the future of blood The nature of our blood can vary over the course of our life. For example our blood type can change following illnesses such as infections, and certain cancers that alter the sugar chains on the surface of the red cell. However, the most dramatic change occurs following a bone marrow transplant. The recipient—usually suffering from blood cell tumours such as leukaemia or lymphoma—is treated with chemotherapy to destroy their own faulty bone marrow cells. They are then injected with haematopoietic stem cells harvested from a compatible donor. These are the precursors of all new

5. Fungi as parasites of plants Global impact Parasitic fungi that grow on plants have reshaped the biosphere and caused the deaths of millions of people since the beginning of agriculture. Dutch elm disease and chestnut blight are examples of fungal pandemics that resulted in widespread ecological changes in the 20th century. These diseases destroyed billions of trees, remodelled the urban landscape in Europe and North America, and ravaged the broadleaf forests of the Eastern United States. Recent pandemics include ash dieback in Europe, and needle blights of pines in Europe and North America. The appearance of these tree diseases

4. Synthetic biology and healthcare Synthetic biology can be applied to medicine in several ways: it can be used to produce drugs and improve monitoring and diagnosis, and it is just starting to be used to modify human cells with properties designed to help patients. In a research context only, it is being applied to building new tissues. Medical applications make very high demands on safety for the individual patient; however, this is true of all medical developments and synthetic biological approaches are not particularly disfavoured in economic terms compared to conventional alternatives. For most applications, there is no risk
