Having recently read Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake I get a little edgy about the whole "let's mess with nature" process. There is undoubtedly a lot of good that can come from our increased understanding of genetics. There is also the potential for a whole lotta bad to happen as well.
Docuticker links to this announcement from the National Academies:
January 30 - Scientists studying pandemic influenza have made a breakthrough in understanding why the 1918 Spanish flu was so deadly. The researchers believe that an aberrant immune response caused tissue damage in the lungs and contributed to the mortality rate of the pandemic.I hope they keep that bug under wraps.
