http://www.rockymountainnews.com/ne...r-scientists-try-their-hands-genetic-enginee/ (the article appeared in a number of different news sources) That's right, people are creating new life forms at home, some of them with minimal science backgrounds. I love how this article has gone basically unremarked and there is little if any public debate about the issue. It's bad enough that selfish, completely unregulated (post-bush) corporations are playing fast and loose with all life on earth, but now amateurs get to tinker with the creation of new life forms. Wanna bet if there is a disaster these amateurs will be the handy excuse for any corporation? The 21st century's counterpart to the lone gunman will be the amateur bioengineer.
