Power, promise of synthetic biology: time is now to invent our future

Source



Canada cannot be left behind when it comes to tapping into the infinite promise of synthetic biology. It is up to us to invent our future now.





Canada’s research and business communities have an opportunity to become world leaders in a burgeoning field that is fast shaping how we deal with everything from climate change to global food security and the production of lifesaving medications. The science of synthetic biology has the transformative capacity to equip us with novel technology tools and products to build a more sustainable society, while creating new business and employment opportunities for the economy of tomorrow.


We can now decipher the code of life for any organism faster and less expensively than ever before. Canadian scientists are producing anti-malarial drugs from organic materials that increase the availability and decrease the cost of lifesaving medicines. They are also developing energy efficient biofuels to dramatically reduce environmental and manufacturing costs, helping Canadian industry to thrive in the global marketplace. Put simply, synthetic biology applies engineering principles to biology to build biological systems that can benefit humankind. It takes the biological information encoded in DNA from one system and renders it functional through its transition and manipulation to another system.

To realize the exponential potential of such innovations, develop them efficiently and deliver them responsibly requires an ecosystem of research and investment that crosses academic disciplines, the public and private sectors. Both the United Kingdom and United States have made synthetic biology a national priority. In January, the U.K. invested over £40-million to establish multidisciplinary research centres that combine innovative science with industry training to form a new generation of bioscience researchers and entrepreneurs.

The groundwork has also been laid for a Canadian revolution in the field. Canada’s scientific community is internationally recognized for its leadership in genomics research and strong partnerships with key industries. Since 2000 Genome Canada and partners have invested more than $2.3-billion in deciphering the genomes of economically important plants, animals and microbes in order to understand how they function. A significant proportion of these funds has been invested in building the technological toolkits that can be applied to synthetic biology.


We Canadians work tirelessly on medical innovation. From the invention of Insulin, Aiding in mapping of the human Genetic code.
We have always been deeply rooted in the feilds of Science, Aviation, Telescopy, and agriculture.

Besides energy exports, These are our main priorities.

We have funneled more than 2.3 billion in the course of our history researching Medicines. Now it has come to the point where Ethics will need to be applied on Engineered organisms.

Forget nanobots. We are getting to the point where we can combine nanotechnology with synthetic biology. To the point where we can create true living *machines*.
Of course the A.I free will will come into play because an organism is an organism. But it will only have the natural instinct granted to it by what ever traits they make *natural* for the organism.

We won't have a Jurassic Park anytime soon. Not open to the public anyways. It's likely some rich people might fund a Dr.Evil typeish lair to breed their army of Dinosaurs for their underground secret amuzement park for their 4, would be now 8 year old child. And who shouldn't breed a pre cataklysm eco-system underground out of sight of critic and law enthusists eyes.

Someone has to lead the world in these ventures because they will be paradigm shifting technology.
It's not like the technology will stop advancing just because the public does not want or has not planned for it.
Weither you like it or not, it's here.

Expect cheap bio-fuels in the near future to wipe out oil from the energy industry completely.
In fact, we won't even need a drop of oil... at all. We will synthesize a combound for every nessisity. Oil (Specifically petrol) for lubrification will replace by Synthetic Oils. Which will be engineered to be potent and non harmful to the enviroment.

It can and is already being done.

The funny thing is many are hording to buy the Oil. But, there are those in the know. Who are quickly giving oil the *Exodus* Which leads to the *mytherious* drop in oil prices.

Those in the know, Have a tip for the near future. That a new fuel, a clean fuel. One that will slash the prices of oil and make it obsolete is quickly approaching.
Many bio-fuels are actually awaiting patents right now and will soon be approved for distribution. That's right. Soon, you won't even have to change the type of Engine you use. Synthetic biology is so versitile. So adaptive. That those developing bio-fuels are doing so to acomodate current fuel standards. So you want to fill that gasoline guzler. Well, What you will be getting out of the pump might not even be gasoline.

You see once this stuff actually hits the market for an internation community after the Ethics of synthetic biology are set in basic form.

Gas pump companies will automatically drop oil for 50% surplus in profits.

People might not even realize what they are getting out of the pump at that point is not petrol based at all. It will come so suddenly that we will have to have the economy prepared. Because all investments in Oil will dry up. And those in the know, Have a prewarned plan ahead of time of such a coming event THAT IS ENIVITABLE. And will cause the economy to crash AND POLITICAL POWER TO SHIFT WORLD WIDE.

This paradigm shift will come upon us. And we will have even more serious concurns on our hands rather than the shift of privitization to public domain.

Besides our social structure, we will have to think about our future as humans or something else? Because with this technology we could effectively write what the current human is off the face of the Earth. Machines can and will take our sperm and eggs and fix/alter away genetic disease or troublesome genes that cause disease. Then the human will be created from *scratch* without birth. The humans of tomorrow will come from cloning vats in the sense that. They are not exactly clones. BUT. From these same machines that will be in our near future will spawn cloned humans as well. Because humans gene sequences can be read and made so that the humans of the future will always be updating their next generation.

We are talking about enivitable Eugentics. This is where Racism must end. Because if we want to maintain racial diffences we need to start understanding that we much respect each other but also know that we are seperate in our own unique way. When engineering we should only concurn ourselves with writing out disease and that's it. We shouldn't push any further such as making everyone genetical and visually similar. We need to leave personalized traits alone because we can't just mess with what makes us human. Ontop of all this we will have the threat of A.I intergration with the human biological system. There is the threat of cyborgs and Superhumans because of these mechanical upgrades.

But science cannot do it alone. Innovation on this scale requires multiple forms of expertise in order to be successful. Research in law, business, social sciences and humanities is vital to addressing questions of ethics, supply chain management, social innovation and cultural adaptation to new technologies.

Industry knowledge and investments, as well as the capacity to incentivize entrepreneurship are key to devising business models that will enable new products to thrive. Governments and funding agencies also need to do their part by supporting multidisciplinary research, training and infrastructure.

From Nov. 24-26, Genome Canada hosted a gathering of more than 300 Canadian parliamentarians, senior public servants as well as representatives from industry, academia and research agencies. The conference will explore how genomics and synthetic biology can help leverage Canada’s traditional resource sectors, while protecting and preserving the environment. In late October of this year, Concordia University—which houses Canada’s flagship synthetic biology research centre—Genome Canada, Genome Québec, the Fonds de Recherche du Québec and the U.K. Science and Innovation Network hosted a workshop assembling some of the major British and American players in the field. The result was the commitment to draft a white paper meant to lay the groundwork for Canadian innovation in the field. Designing and delivering a Canadian blueprint for synthetic biology will take vision, hard work, cross-sectoral collaboration and money.


The success of genomics research illustrates the foresight of committing resources to compete in areas with truly transformative potential. Canada cannot be left behind when it comes to tapping into the infinite promise of synthetic biology. It is up to us to invent our future now. Rémi Quirion is the chief scientist of Québec, Fonds de recherche du Québec. Vincent Martin is Canada Research Chair in Microbial Genomics and Engineering and a professor in the Department of Biology at Concordia University in Montreal. Pierre Meulien is president and CEO of Genome Canada. Marc LePage is the president and CEO of Génome Québec. Graham Bell is the president of the Royal Society of Canada.


So everyone, Are you ready to have your world turned upside down? Are you ready to leave Evolution behind and embrace our Godhood?

We are made in Gods image. We are a creator species. Let us congregate and create many beautiful things and use our power to benifit mankind and all existance of life as we know it.

Let us take our knowledge of synthetic biology and apply it to Mars. We can rewrite the landscape, make it look like Earth.

All this can be done with synthetic biology. The universe is a canvas. And planets the setting. We can paint the planets how we see fit. But let us not forget that the Tree of life both contains great good and great evil. With knowledge procreation and creation in general. We realize our nakedness because of the knowledge of the Tree. Now we must utilize the tree for morality aligned ventures. For the betterment of all mankind and for creating a solar system blooming with life.

We can do this and so much more, We can spread life throughout the Universe. Just like our forefathers did before us.

Ethics? LOL. The Canadian government has been clamping down on the opinions of scientists for over a decade, especially Harper and his band merry assclowns. So it stands to reason that any ethical stance will be derived from the Canadian government, which has no ethics ;-)

As far as flooding the market with inexpensive biofuels, do you really think this is going to happen? The government derives much of its tax base from the alleged 37% excise tax (actually higher) plus 13% HST on gasoline and oil fuel products, that would be 50% of the cost of every liter (minimum) goes to the government to supposedly keep the roads good. You seen the roads lately? If gas prices drop too far, the government will loose billions of dollars in revenues it uses to extort municipalities, which is actually where they use the "lion's share" of the gas tax revenues. If you don't believe that, talk to your town council and ask them about their federal "grants" that allow them to run a town on a $6 million budget when the property tax receipts are only $1.8 million. In any event, the federal government will be forced to either raise income taxes or borrow more money from the IMF, er... I mean the Bank of Canada, er... same difference.

This is a similar situation to cigarettes. If the government outlaws smoking cigarettes, where is all that extra tax money going to come from eh? You and me in income taxes, that's where.

So ethics, ROFL, I think Aerosmith has a song called Dream On and Supertramp, Dreamer. Everything is controlled by a confidence game called fiat currency and if the government isn't getting "currency" from the usual suspects, regardless of improvements or cost reductions, they will get it from you and me and our children 1 to 20 generations down the temporal road. BTW, did you know Canadian money is printed in Australia and the Bank of Canada is not "owned" by the Canadian government/Treasury?

Your premise sounds good on the surface, but unfortunately, the reality of our situation will screw it up.

Cheers - Dave

The current government, Harper and co., are peddlers for the oil industry.

One example

Then again, the federal elections are due in October 2015. So, the next guy in line will sing and dance to the corporations music.

Politics are like mirages in the dessert, they look nice and refreshing from far, but are dry and arid up close.

It's not up to the Government tho. It will be up to the people if they purchase the new bio-fuels.

And that's all nice and everything making the road scam obvious.

But the fact remains, If we have to pay less on fuel then yes road maintence prices will go up. But not by much. Nothing that Taxs can't cover.

Besides. This exodus is already happening now. And there is nothing that will stop it from coming.

In fact it may even bankrupt a lot of rich pricks who need to be dethroned from their Oil Empire.

Let them buy the thousands of gallons of Oil they want Lmao. It won't make a single difference. The gas companies don't want to rely on a sketchy product such as oil for revenue. I mean look at it now. It costs to much to pull out of ground. Its getting to the point where the profit margin is so slim. For energy empires to stay float. They either adapt or die off.

Because with new Bio-fuels. Made from renewable sources. The need to pay so many oil workers to pull the resources out will be destroyed by the low income pools generated by scientists that would be manifacting this bio-fuel in mass quantities.

Much less dangerous work and less employees to pay sound 100% better than Oils current Up and down strain on the market.

This will happen because such companies as chevron will be the first to pump out bio-fuels. Right now i believe their *gasoline* is part gas, part bio-fuel specifically ethinol right now.

I wouldn't put em past em to ditch oil completely if they had the choice.

So this really has nothing to do with the governments needs and demands A I Harper is a dick and he does not matter.

This is completely dependant on what the people and the consumer/Sellers want. They want a secure fuel that garentees at least a 50% increase in profits.

But slashing Oil worker jobs, Ontop of that with production costs dropping everyday.
It's the next logical conclusion even for the most buisness savy. Which is why Oil prices are dropping so hard right now because these bio-fuels will be released in the next year or 2.

You are right about canada lacking Ethics for Bio-technology.
This Article is about Canada create the blueprints for bio-Ethics. Someone needs to start the parade i'd figure it would of been another country but not Canada. Well with a bit more research. Many Scientists and entrepreneus are supporting these ventures with massive ammounts of funding.

This problem is. this isn't public knowledge. Everyone is Oblivious to this aproaching paradigm shift.
We need to wake the population up and make synthetic biology a real issue, just as much a terrorism or Iran or w.e people complain about nowadays. EBOlA. Taxs. lol.

Of course it will happen . It's inevitable. Technology progresses and always has regardless of whether people are ready for it or think it will. Eventually some scientists somewhere will develop alternative forms of energy that are cheaper then gas and the genie will be out of the bottle.

To argue against it simply because lots of people make profit off gas now; to me at least, would be like someone in the early eighteen hundreds arguing against the invention of the steam and combustion engine because to many people make money off horses.

As far as taxation, the governments will simply develop new forms of taxation. Many governments have been floating the idea of a mile tax for ages and even on ats just recently was an article about Washington state testing such a program.

WA State likely to approve pilot program to charge drivers per mile

So don't worry about the government getting their tax money, they will always find a way. And a mile tax will be no problem since the majority of people believe driving is a privilege not a right.

Just my opinion though.

A mile tax would suck, But w.e. If the fuel is dirt cheap. At least don't replace current prices in fuel as a sort of tax.

That would still be robbing the population and won't help in aiding a blooming economy world wide.

We need to get more serious about research and development.

We need these to become as much of an issue as War and Terrorism.

Because as this technology continues to fly under the Radar. So will its advancements grow.
This technology has huge implications for Abuse. Like giving heroin to an addict or money to a horder.

This needs to become a public issue to avoid the scenario of a wave of bio-tech being pushed onto a market that has not acomidated the new growth of resources in a sustainable way.

Ontop of that many investors in the old industries will have revenue cut in place of new innovative and profitable organizations.

We are seeing this occuring right now. These events are happening in the current present. Not the future. But now.

I have reason to believe that much of this information is being suppressed by Oil enthusiasts as well as people who use GMO as fearmongering against such sciences however as the poster mentioned above and how i mentioned in a previous post.

It is Envitable. It will happen reguardless if we want it to or not. There is HUGE profit incentive in this emerging feild.
And it is ALREADY rocking the economy.

The drop in Oil is DIRECTLY related to the threat OF BIO-FUELS.

The Politics don't matter. They can wage 1000 wars and unless civilization is destroyed. These events will come.

The rich can facade around their Petrol Industry but the fact remains that Advancements in bio-technology from synthetic biology will put the stake in the Oil vampires coffin. In place of a Plant that soaks up energy from the Sun to turn into oil. Or maybe a bacteria? We could always try a fungus or some other micro-organism. It really does not matter which route we take because the routes are already there. And awaiting distribution. And even then, Further advances will refine such developments with greater effeciency. As a market developing textiles, plastics, Resins, Manufacturing materials, Medicines, Automotive transportation, Heating and electricity, Food and agricultural production, Mechanical enhancements ( Such as lubricants, and fluids) Stationary equiment ( Pens pencils paper white out ect), Mining- Metal synthesis.

I'm not sure if people realize the change that is coming and is applying pressure to our current economy.

It's not just oil that will drop in price. EVERYTHING. WILL NEED ADJUSTING.

As you can see currently, these technologies ARE applying strain to the current economy PRESENTLY. Yes. This is not a future event. Nore is this something we can debade in 10-20 years. We need to debate it NOW. Because the changes are here and the only thing that is holding back mass distribution are Oil titans bribing political figures to hold back the Genie.

But it's to late, Many people seeking to grant their wishes from the Genie have already opened the bottle.
The Lid is off and the Genie is loose. And creating Havok for the Economy.

Some energy companies are trying to suck every last penny out of the system before the mass exodus shatters the industry completely. Because Bio-fuels will be produced by linking companies to gas suppliers. Rather than Oil suppliers.

That means that companies at the pump right now, if they have any control over any private oil supplies will likely be trying to shell out as much Oil as possible to make room and profits for the new Bio-fuels they will be selling as well as manufacturing. And many Gas pump companies who are only buying oil from the market would likely begin in production of their own Bio-fuels because unlike attempting to survay oil and drilling, with bio-fuels the risk factors are reduced. They could technically build a facility where ever they desire. Thus allowing production to be in a more controlled and regulated enviroment.

Something these energy distributors WANT. They absolutely don't want to be at the whim of Oil distributors.
And yeah as mentioned some gas companies produce their own oil. Hense the drop in gas price and the hurried action of *sell sell sell! all most go! *

Because in the near future, oil prices will be so low. That the profit they will be reciving now would be chump change if they decides to sell in the future. And to what buyers? If oil is mostly sold to the pump industry? And that industry is moving away from petrol. Who is going to buy the Oil? Mad max truck drivers roaming around the desert? It would be you or me buying it at the gas pump as this change is anticipated by *Those in the Know* And they Know it is coming and are preparing for it. But the question is, Does the population know? Is the population in the know? The answer would be they are completely in the dark about this.

I like your optimism, but I am quite sure oil will not go away until the last drop of profit is sucked from it, unless of course there's a revolution and I do enjoy a good revolution ;-) One thing to be highly aware of however, biotech, genetics and nanotechnology start-ups and progress are monitored directly by CSIS. Those asshats are quick to crawl up "under your skirt," hack your computers, steal your information and pass it on to the harper unit and its cronies, or worse like the NSA. There is actually an intel sharing agreement that operates between the US and Canada and actually the way it works (due to legal structures) is the NSA hacks Canada and Canada hacks the USA. Once however, your plans and/or technology is in their system, if they see it as a game changer, your pooched.

I had a situation something like (it may or may not have involved CSIS at the time, but it was around the time I was sending them FOIA requests on myself and they were sending back national security statutes LOL) that about 10 years ago. I had developed a compact on-demand ethanol process that used about 2400 cubic feet of space, including the 1 megawatt genny. Boring stuff, not a game changer but definitely a money maker. Almost everything fit into a nice little 40 foot shipping container (and we have a surplus of those suckers). My process is unique, but uses the Iogen enzyme for cellulose conversion to sugars.

Well, I sent off the 173 pages of paperwork to my local MP to see about getting some government backing and to get EDC involved as I had $295 million in RFQ's for moveable turnkey ethanol fueled electrical generators for India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, etc. I needed the government backing and EDC because I was going to have to set up a plant and employ another 500 people or so. All of a sudden a couple of weeks later, all of the tenders dried up and I found out that the MP had farmed the RFQ's out to one of his friends. I suppose one that would give him kickbacks, er... I mean campaign contributions.

Yeah, be careful of government, they are the parasites that feed off the bacteria that suck on the crap in the pond scum.

BTW, most gasolines have a mix of ethanol, I think the max right now is E85 or 85% ethanol/15% gasoline, but most are 10% or 15% ethanol in the lower grades anyway. Here's the problem however, ethanol has an energy density of about 34,000 MJ/liter, gasoline is around 42,000 MJ/liter, so to get equivalent power from ethanol, you need more of it or an additive. Personally, I like to mix hydrogen with ethanol as it is around 120,000 MJ/liter and it really isn't hard to make a liter of hydrogen every 5 seconds. FYI, Propane is around 50,000 MJ/liter and Natural Gas around 65,000 MJ/liter.

The tech already exists to remove oil from the economic equation for fuel, but in order to do that, you have to remove all those who control and profit from the oil.

Just my opinion though.


And as these assclowns in government allocate additional taxes and more creative ways to suck the money from your pocket, they exponentially increase the probability of a revolution, and not one of technology, something more akin to the French revolution.

Free energy isn't necessarily free, there is always some "cost" on the balance sheet, but that can be a very small cost unless the government can get their collective hooks into it. If the government can't tax it, then that dog don't hunt here. There is a similar scenario surrounding quantum communications (entanglement).

Only two particles can be entangled reliably, if a third is introduced, the system collapses, meaning quantum communications cannot be eavesdropped upon. Hmmm, not so good for the spy agencies. Second problem, quantum communications operates outside of normal space-time (through some form of BEC/ER/EPR solution) so communications sources cannot be triangulated due to its nature and as well to the third particle problem of collapse (which might be able to determine distance based on energy levels if it weren't for instant disentanglement). Finally, there is no way to regulate communications (from a government standpoint) via entanglement, therefore, there can be no way to tax its use, you can only tax the individual devices. This tech has been stalled in an ontario university for almost 15 years because it can't be taxed and can't be eavesdropped on.

Social patterns, technology release, global situations concerning dropping tech into the "wild" and the government's (or their handler's) responses, are a complex area. 99% of us want cheaper energy and more privacy, but it won't happen until all other avenues are expended and the profit sucked out of each and every one.

I totally agree with you. And there is people like you who opened the lid on the Genie.

But more importantly you are not the only one. This is picking up pace quickly, Ethenol might not be the future but as far as engineering organisms to produce bio-fuels.

I'm sure something a lot more potent than than ethanol will be released.

it's sad that incentive of profit has hindered its development distribution.

But as mentioned these will ultimately be the conclusions because technology will carry us. There is far to many nations and orginizations deeply rooted in these feilds now to end it completely is short of dissolving civilization altogether.

It's unfortunate you had to be on the wrong end of the governments wrath but that's what capitalism is.

But, you and me both know that greed won't even stop this from spilling into a global trade, a global economy. Hell look at GM foods and how they dominate agriculture. Just wait till the vast portion of the population becomes scientists and bio-engineer. Bio-technitians, coupled with nanotechnology.

The spawn of the new millenium of humanity is here. And it must become a public issue as well as ambition to regulate and prioritize this type of technology so that we can begin our projects of diversifying nearby planets. Which is our collective end goal. To beable to terra form uninhabitable planets into sactuaries.

It all stems back to that. From every branch that this technology reaches out to, is the building blocks of life and creating life from inanimate matter itself.



If it's not regulated and does not become a public priority. The outcome will be much like this.

I'm all for Canada being able to promote synthetic biology. There is a company up there that I am watching closely that is working on a cure for type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It works for both types and it may not be a permanent cure, but it is supposed to cure it for a few years at a time.

The reason this is important is because diabetes of either type can become a debilitating condition. Not to mention the fact that synthetic genetically engineered insulin is inferior in so many ways to the insulin that is produced naturally in the cells. I can see that they would still be able to make a profit with having to implant new cells every few years.

I really hope they get this through. There are a few companies around the world working on it, but I think they are the farthest on it I hope the synthetic biology ethics committee will decide that this treatment should be available to all people around the world, as long as they can travel to Canada.

Canada's economy will survive the coming collapse, as long as they can cure and prevent diseases in humans. There is a huge chance with all the research that has been done there for them to survive the collapse of the Western fiat currencies.

Let's just hope that the tentacles of the 3 letter health organizations from the rest of the world do not prevent any of these effective treatments from coming out because they use non-embryonic stem-cells or some other measly excuse. I believe that the 3 letter health organizations live to protect the bankroll of the pharmaceutical companies. It would be in Canada's financial interest to assert their national sovereignty and tell anyone who says that "they can't" to take a hike. My humble opinion.
