Japanese Researchers have succesful inserted HUMAN genes into rice plants. The rice plants with the new genes can kill the weeds. Now you think the farmers would be happy about this. Unlike other chemicals that would normally kill weeds, this would do a similar job. However the weeds may have the tendedency to become resistent to the chemicals. These weeds would become resistent and more of a pain-in-the neck to kill.

For the full story go to: www.sciencenews.org...

Back in the old days we didn't have to do all this confusing stuff. In fact, in the ancient days, people probably didn't mind weeds as much as we do today. Rather then focussing on this we should just go to the supermarket pick up some vodka and salt.
You get home, and you apply the "Sodium-Chloride" and within days weeds will die and won't come back, don't waste your money on Round-Up or worse gentics to kill your weeds.

Keep things simple, salt your weeds, and sit back and watch the sunset sipping on some vodka.

I like the idea of blendong the genes together, and who knows, maybe some useful side effects will come about from this.

Absolutely, this is very true. There is an interesting article on edible weeds here. So, while cultivating your vegetable garden keep your eyes open for the good weeds. You might want to keep them around, personally I like the taste of "lambs quarter" better than spinach. But commercial farmers don't have the time to sort it all out.

Salt isn't really good for your garden, it will accumulate in the soil eventualy stunting the "good" plants. This can also happen with some fertilizers too. I'll pass on that, but the vodka isn't too bad of an idea!
