This is the terrifying aspect of the OP: “Gene drive,” Regalado writes in a review of current articles on the topic, “would cause chosen genes, including man-made ones, to quickly spread through a species as its members reproduce.”

So, let's say they start messing with viruses? We've already created "super-bugs," and that came simply from our lack of knowledge regarding how to use anti-biotics.

BTW, it ain't often I agree with Tombstone.
