I was recently interviewed by Andrew Snyder-Beattie from the Future of Humanity Institute. I am putting edited excerpts from this interview below with the hope of engaging a discussion.  During this discussion, I am advocating that we work toward the development of a culture of security in biology that goes beyond the traditional notion of biosecurity to include many aspects of the daily operations of a synthetic biology facility. Read the interview for more details and leave a comment. I’d like to know what you think.
