Syn

Bio Hits the Big Time


As you know, scientists have announced a milestone in
the emerging field of cellular and genetic engineering
research known as
synthetic biology

It is vital that we
as a society consider, in a thoughtful manner, the
significance of this kind of scientific
development.

PCSBI concluded that
“synthetic
biology is capable of significant but
limited achievements posing limited risks
.”
