We can build you
Synthetic Biology is one of those new areas of science that attracts a lot of nonsense statements and silly questions. Are we going to reconstruct people? Is it the new Frankenstein science? Are we going to kill ourselves with manmade viruses. I decided to find out the truth about syntetic biology and what it really is. I tracked down expert Professor George Attard from the Department of Chemistry at Southampton University to get a reality check. He poured cold water on some of the fears and crazinesses and gave us clear answers about the nature and goals of Synthetic Biology.
