Glow in the Dark Plants on Kickstarter

Episode 974 (1:51:27)

Leo's guests are Anthony Evans and Kyle Taylor, who are talking about bio tech and glow in the dark plants. They've raised nearly $125,000 on Kickstarter to try and fund creating home plants that glow in the dark. The idea is to take genomes from bacteria and then put them into another organism via another bacteria. Some think genetically organisms is a bad idea, but they says it's because they're trying to force farmers to buy genetically engineered corn seed every year. They just want to make cool plants.
