Research quest for the fountain of youth - Biodesign Instituten ja Methuselah Foundationin yhteistyöstä. Ympäristömyrkkyjen hajottamista mikrobeilla sovelletaan kehoon kertyvän roskan hajottamiseen. Ei enää tukkeutuvia verisuonia, jos keho voidaan muunnella tuottamaan roskaa hajottavia entsyymeitä.

Amateurs are trying genetic engineering at home - Biohakkereista.
But critics of the movement worry that these amateurs could one day unleash an environmental or medical disaster. Defenders say the future Bill Gates of biotech could be developing a cure for cancer in the garage. Many of these amateurs may have studied biology in college but have no advanced degrees and are not earning a living in the biotechnology field. Some proudly call themselves "biohackers" — innovators who push technological boundaries and put the spread of knowledge before profits.
