One response to “understanding synthetic biology

  1. Synbio vanilla (synthetic biology vanilla flavoring) will likely soon be on the market. It’s produced with a new, virtually unregulated, experimental genetic technology. Synbio vanilla was designed to replace natural vanilla flavoring from vanilla beans, and is made in labs using synthetic DNA and reprogrammed, genetically engineered yeast. And like many of the products of genetic engineering, it won’t be labeled — instead it is being falsely marketed as “natural”.
