The second briefing in the new GeneWatch UK briefing series "Biological Weapons and Genetic Technologies" is now available. The series covers "how the advances in genetics may influence the development of biological weapons. Although biological weapons are abhorred by most people, genetic engineering and other genetic technologies, coupled with other technological advances, could make them more ‘attractive’ to the military."
The first two briefings in the series can be downloaded as pdf files (for Acrobat) from:
