Making this technology available to everyone is both a wonderful and terrifying thing. One also has to wonder how choosing to tamper and edit our DNAs will impact our ability to evolve naturally.

I'm a big proponent of advancements in technology but tampering with our DNA is something that makes me really, really uncomfortable. The benefits are great but I feel like the risks are bigger.

Anyone with the technical skill and resources to insert an angle plasmid into bacteria has more than enough skill to just make a bomb with supplies from home depot? But if it helps to know, when you order DNA from a synthesis company they check the sequence against known pathogens.

I'm thinking it might be beneficial to healing genetic issues like being blind or treating/preventing physical abnormalities. If they can do that I'm all for it.
