Do-It-Yourself Genetic Engineering

From CBC News, this article appeared today: Synbiota biohacking kits let you do genetic engineering at home.

From the article:

A Canadian company is trying to make it possible for anyone to be a “biohacker” and make custom genetically modified organisms in their home kitchen.

Homemade GMOs may sound scary to some, but Toronto-based Synbiota thinks making genetic engineering technology available to ordinary people will lead to new products that we haven’t yet dreamed of.
