of my favorite links on the topic of genetic arts:
This is an excellent website regarding genetic engineering and the
concept of humans playing God. The site asks and addresses questions
like putting 2 additional base pairs into DNA to get trillions of
more new proteins that
could have endless functions and structures. It also addresses the
ethical side of genetic engineering and biotechnology
Another great site to review the ethical side of human genetic engineering.
Published by the Christian church, the article discusses both the
science and conflicts raised by such a practice. One person interviewed
was a pioneered in the field that advocates for the abolishment
of human ailment.
Who does DNA belong too? Is it a product of nature, or is there
some kind of intellectual property patent that corporations and
man can own? Does this limit our freedom as humans and whom do we
let own this patent? Should we really use genetic alterations for
aesthetic purposes? All this is addressed in this website.
Designer babies may or may not be a thing of the future. Will government
allow science to make such a thing? Humans currently have mapped
the human genome and are on the fast track to making such a fantasy
come true. The site tells of the possibilities and when we as a
society might see such a thing.
Strictly a site to discuss how to enhance human aesthetic traits.
A little related to designer babies and how we can enhance the traits
that give humans beauty and rid ourselves of disease and ailment.
An excellent site to understand the logistics of human genetic engineering
for non-medical purposes.
