Re: New Idea for Dead Country.
Oddly enough I just watched a doco the other night that answered your question - and I have to say it scared the carp out of me.
He can work from home. A home lab. So why am I in a tizzy you ask? Because I watched a whole bunch of would be genetic tinkerers aged in their twenties at most, playing with sequencers that they got second hand for a grand or so. Those things used to cost hundreds of thousands and even millions. And the power they can place in the hands of people with 'an idea' and no oversight from a scientific ethics committee is frightening.
You want to know where the next plague could come from. Think the modern Frankenstein in his garage with some bacteria, a gene sequencer, and a few vials of growth media.
