    "I am creating artificial life, declares US gene pioneer," The Guardian.

    venter and the genome project

    while i agree with venter that this is inevitable, the fact that this is coming from him, someone that was trying to make money out of genomic data, is making me a bit unease.

    I have to admit it is slighty un-nerving, but hey, maybe we'll get used to it, like IVF.

    The religious and 'family' groups are just going to LOVE this one.

    :p

    I'm all for it too, it's where we're heading after all. Lest we let religious heads of state put a stop to anything that goes against their personal beliefs.
