Remixing DNA

Interesting session but a little more science than I was in the mood for at the moment. I considered going to the "sex laws and technology" one, but I knew it'd be packed with people.

Any engineering of DNA sequences we can do right now results in an inferior manipulation than what we find in nature.

Policy and politics intersecting with science -- more people died of SARS than of anthrax, yet at the merest trace of a possibility of an anthrax spore in an east coast postal service office, and postal service offices close down across a region.
