Synthetic biology

Synthetic biology is "extreme genetic engineering". A broad coalition of 111 organisations world-wide in March 2012 released The Principles for the Oversight of Synthetic Biology - to govern synthetic organisms and their products, to protect public health and the environment, and to meet economic, social and ethical goals. The coalition calls for a moratorium. SynBio not only cuts and pastes genes but also writes genetic code to create new genes, genetic traits and new life forms from scratch.
