The New Wild West: The Frontiers of Bioengineering and Consumer Genomics Dan Faggella interview with Dr. Lyon

If you suspected that bioengineering is the new frontier of human endeavor, the experts agree. Genomics - with its proliferation of metaphors - scientists as pioneers and bioengineering as the home of innovation and rugged individualism - is the new Wild West.
