I agree: Synthetic Biology has the potential to be a “Key Field of the Future”.
Also, I appreciate IEET’s effort in fostering public discussions about this field, that has well known potential applications implying BIG ethical issues (remember that “B”, in “CBRN”, stays for Biological….  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemical,_biological,_radiological,_and_nuclear ).

For starters I strongly suggest to read this book (80 percent of which does not require a PhD):
<<Bio-inspired Innovation and National Security>>, by National Defense University Press (2010)
available for free http://www.ndu.edu/CTNSP/docUploaded//BioInspiredInnovation.pdf (3 MBytes).





It is an interesting topic. If we are to get control of ourselves and our environment we will need to be able to fully understand how we work on a biological level.  Being able to manufacture specific bioligies would be a huge step in that direction. I am interested in whether there is research into synthetic symbiosis.
