The Rise of Homemade Lifeforms
Story here: http://current.com/items/89655379/the_rise_of_homemade_...



Meredith L. Patterson is trying to develop genetically altered yogurt bacteria that will glow green to signal the presence of melamine, the chemical that turned Chinese-made baby formula and pet food deadly. She is part of a growing movement of amateur biologists carrying out high level genetic engineering experiments in their own home.
