Xenesis is a 2004 techno-thriller by Beat Glogger, a Swiss science journalist, published by Rowohlt Verlag. The book builds around a theme of livestock that are genetically modified for xenotransplantation, as a remedy for human organ donor shortages. A film adaptation may be in progress.
The title is an artificial word that combines the words "xenos"—from the Greek for "alien"—and "Genesis" (taken from the Biblical creation story).
