Scientists, according to this BBC article, have constructed the very first synthetic virus. The response, of course, has been that constructing such a thing could lead to potential acts of bio-terrorism.
The scientists behind the experiment said that only a few people had the knowledge to make it happen.
And how did they gain this knowledge?
"To construct the virus, the researchers say they followed a recipe they downloaded from the internet and used gene sequences from a mail-order supplier."
There really is everything on the Internet.
