Abstract : This report summarizes the scientific principles underlying genetic modification of microorganisms. It assesses the global availability and cost of technology (know-how, keystone equipment, and synthesized biological materials) needed to acquire and produce potentially lethal biological agents in quantity. The analysis includes technology to engineer novel organisms previously unknown in nature, to synthesize organisms de novo, or to modify naturally pre-existing organisms. The… Expand
