Yes, I would most honestly have to agree... The profit would be endless, but then again, think of how much it would cost to create a "dino." Your
average scientist with Genome Experience has to cost what..??.. 150,000 a year? How many of these scientists are you going to have to hire to complete
an ENTIRE genome to create just ONE dinosaur let alone thousands of species. Hmm... I'd say probably 20 scientists MIN per species, if you want it
done in a reasonable amount of time. Would probably need 3 Supercray XT3 DNA sequencing computers at a minimum... If you wanted to speed the process
though I'd definitely go with IBM's Bluegene/L Super computer system, which I believe last year or the year before won fastest super computer in the
word for gene sequencing, but is going to cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars just for 1.
Not to mention the fact of the government looking into what you're going to be doing with SO many scientists and super computers. I'll just say
pricing for supercomputer approx. $100,000. that's $3,000,000.00 in the first year for the first species just in that area alone. Then you need a
lab, incubation area, test facilities, advertising once project is completed, packaging of meet, ticket systems, going to have to create super
powerful holding areas, the list goes on and on and on... If you continued to calculate this from beginning to end I'm sure the price would go into
the Billions of dollars. Perhaps we should talk to Bill Gates... lol...
