Nature is so complicated that scientists have been unable to create a single cell.
The broad goal of synthetic biology is to control the entire biosphere and to replace nature with simpler man-made biology which they can control. Synthetic biology involves the deliberate construtive modification of cells, organisms, populations, or their major subsystems to achieve human objectives.

“Advances in biological research likely will permit development of a new class of Advanced Biological Warfare (ABW) agents fuly engineered to elicit novel effects.”
“Biotechnology: iimpact on Biological Warfare and Biodefense”, 2003
The Chemical Weapons Convention (1993) does not cover (1) biologically mediated Biocatalysis or Synthetic Biology, (2) synthesis of pathogenic viruses, or (3) synthesis of bioactive peptides (Substance P).
Recombinant DNA which alters an organism’s genetic makeup, increases aerosol stability and heightens pathogenesis also has limits (traceable).
Traditional and Genetically Modified Biowarfare Agents
Advanced Biowarfare agents are weapons engineered to target specific human biological systems at the molecular level. They target Biochemical Pathways critical to physiological processes and exploit vulnerabilities. data obtained through genomic and proteomic research are critical to agent development. Processes associated with bacteria, viruses and proteins can cause incapacitation and death. Unlike traditional and genetically modified agents, the capability-based threat of ABW agents will continue Indefinitely in parallel with advances in biotechnology. “Advanced Biological Warfare (ABW) Agents”

The Genomic Era (Age of Biotechnology) began around 1999 and extends indefinitely because the technology is endless. Placing foreign genes into animals and plants permits the targeted organism to produce new proteins not previously encoded in its genes. Transgenic insects, such as bees, wasps, or mosquitos could be developed to produce and deliver protein-based biological warfare agents. A mosquite could be geneticcally altered to produce and secrete a highly potent bioregulator or toxin protein in it saliva and then intoxicate people with the protein by innoculation during its feeding process.
Bioregulators and toxins are effective at exceedingly los doses so an individual may succumb to infection after having been bitten only a few times. Nematodes are some of the most studied life forms. The human and worm have a common ancestor from which they jointly inherit many similar genes. The worm has a gene similar to the human breast cancer gene BRCa1.
There are already over 40 metadata dictionaries (called ontologies) for the life sciences. there is a massive coordinated effort to model virtual organisms and create totally new life forms. future application of transgenics technology will be targeted toward development of transgenic plants and insects that produce a desired protein. Transgenic plans are engineered to produce large quantities of bioregulatory or toxic proteins which are purified fromplant cells and serve as bioproduction reactors.
Humans and plants share a common pathogen recognition pathway as part of their innate immune systems. The data sheds light on how pathogen recognition proteins function and the role they play in inflammatory diseases.
“There has been a great deal of speculation that R proteins and Nod1 are related, but our study provides the first direct link between plants and humans. Plants have similar immune responses to bacteria.” – R. Ulevitch

Researchers at Monsanto enginerred tobacco to express human somatotropin (hST), a hormone most often used to treat hypopituitary dwarfism in children. the gene coding for the protein hST was introduced for the first time into the chloroplasts (the compartment in leaf cells that generate energy from light) instead of the nucleus which resulted in 300X yield in protein. Plant cells can also be used to mass-produce human proteins. Corn, soybean, and tobacco plants have been used in this way. The yield of protein from plants is generally higher than that from animals; however, human cells link carbohyddrates to some antibodies and these molecules cannot yet be produced in plants. “Plants Produce Human Protein” – BBC News March 2000
