Re: Dinosaur Protein
And what's teh concept of Jurassic Park from? <<<
Michale Crichton's diseased imagination? Seriously, it's just scifi.
All the marketing of how it was "sience eventuality" was just that:
marketing. If we ever have zoos filled with non-avian dinosaur-ish
animals, it won't be from cloning extint DNA, it will be from
understanding developmental-genetic mechanisms so well we can
custom-design our own organisms. I know several genetic engineers who
think this won't sound terribly far fetched in 20 or 30 years.
Of course, if we do this they won't be "real" dinosaurs, just genetic
monsters created for our entertainment. Feel free to debate the ethics
of said enterprise (maybe on the newly created FDML...Fake Dinosaur
Mailing List). Also, the zoos will most likely use empty moats to
contain their designer dinoauroids, which have the advantage of not
failing in the even of power outage...
