Tony: This is a pretty amazing breakthrough. I really love it when science can solve problems like this. My major concern with it is, and always has been, that humans have a tendency to play with things they don't understand. Our biology is complex beyond compare, and in complex systems it is very, very difficult to understand how one change can impact seemingly unrelated systems. Just ask any programmer.

Looks safe so far. We don't understand a lot about genomes. Right to be careful.
