    I'm interested in everyone's political thoughts on genetic engineering. There are so many things happening right now with CRISPR technology, it seems to be way to think by the year 2040 there'll be a plethora of pharmaceutical applications and the regulations that come with it all. Imagine what kinds of things we may be capable of in the near future with the use of computers.

    What can I learn from you as I dive into the field?

    Thank you!

    You can learn that if you accidentally leave the lab with some little friends that got out of the test tube on you then you could potentially end all life as we know it.

    My political thoughts are that governments will make a mess of things as usual. But the genetic Pandora's box is already open. I'm sure the ADA will be lobbying governments to ban PEGM, that is Performance Enhancing Genetic Mods : )
