Finally, designer genes that won't make you look fat, and may save your life

Glenn Dorsam
Department of Veterinary and Microbiological Sciences, North Dakota State University

Monday morning (8:04AM), you wash down a prescription pill with some orange juice. By lunch time, a fleet of designer genes is released into your blood stream, targets the diseased cells and infiltrates them. You order a Grande decaf vanilla double shot skinny latte in the afternoon (3:46PM). Five minutes later, the designer genes have completed their interrogation of the billions of DNA sequences in your diseased cells to bind and fix with 100% accuracy the mutated gene causing your disease. By the time you drift off to Jay Leno (10:44PM), your genetic disease is cured! Sounds like science fiction? If you think so then please join me at the Stoker's Basement for an examination of the exciting new medicine of designer genes. One size fits all!
