Open Source biology and knowledge distribution

Author: JT Smith

On Slashdot: "IEEE Spectrum has an opinion piece this month on Open-source Biology and
Its Impact on Industry
. The article speculates about advancements in biology and
biological-based manufacturing and how it is likely impossible for anyone to keep control of
the Intellectual Property around genetic engineering. If software was as easy to produce and
prevalent as DNA, then it would be similarly impossible to control software as IP."
