Interesting.. or scary?

I was wandering through the reaches of the internet and came upon a subject that I feel hasn't gotten nearly enough attention. How many of you actually knew that there is a 100% Fully synthetic self replicating bacteria? Did you also watch I Am Legend?



Honestly, I find it simply horrifying at all the possible misuses that this has but at the same time fascinating. Hopefully we don't have a zombie apocalypse in our near future, eh?

    The playing god thing relates back to the whole scary perspective, you've got this douchebag tempting the elements and expecting something to not come back and bite him in the ass. Scary!

    Yeah, the genome is fully synthetic. So I can be more precise as to say that all of its genetic material is fully synthetic would be accurate I.E. its instructions, brains, whatever you want to call it.
