The Dawn Of Digital Life

Synthetic biology, aka "digital life", can be described as editing DNA like software in a computer. Recent advances "have enabled scientists to make new sequences of DNA from scratch. By combining these advances with the principles of modern engineering, scientists can now use computers and laboratory chemicals to design organisms that do new things--like produce biofuels or excrete the precursors of medical drugs." For more info, see: synbioproject.org.

But the world of biosynthesis is, and will be, abounding with conflict.

This is how I foresee it playing out . . .
