Hampikian believes the applications of his work could be wide-ranging. He has already received a $1 million grant from the US Department of Defense to develop a DNA "safety tag" that could be added to voluntary DNA reference samples in criminal cases to distinguish them from forensic samples. Such tags would not necessarily have to consist of lethal sequences, but could be based on primes that would be easy to detect using a simple kit.

Further down the line there is the possibility of constructing a "suicide gene" to code for deadly amino acid primes. It could be attached to genetically modified organisms and activated to destroy them at a later date if they turned out to be dangerous, Hampikian suggests.

What do you think they really want to do with a sequence of DNA that is lethal if injected in humans?

Interesting information. However, text/info from external sources should always be wrapped in EX tags. If you aren't sure how to do this, let me or one of the mods know.

Cool find!


PEACE

That would only be possible if they had a method to alter cells within a living human being. Gene therapy may allow the creation of an adenovirus that could alter the DNA of a cell and promote that cell to 'overwrite' existing cells of a similar type. This process would effectively alter sections of/or your entire body. Create an adenovirus to overwrite the cells of the human heart valve, and then have them fail when a given substance or corresponding adenovirus is introduced and you have a mechanism to suicide a group or an individual.

There is really something psychologically wrong with people who think this sort of research is okay, and they seem to be the same people who are tinkering with the idea of hybrid whatevers.

"Hey, let's cross a human with a gorilla and if we don't like how it turns out, we'll inject it with this suicide DNA and kill it." And you know bloody well they'll try the combination again because man just can't leave well enough alone.

This planet is sick, sick, sick.

I suspect the germ warfare guys and the UN socialist population planners will be jumping all over this. If they can find gene sequences that could wipe out specific races they will be ecstatic. That's the kind of leadership that we have.

I agree. It's disgusting, isn't it? Man has become a really weird animal.

Thanks for the awesome diagram wingman.

Naturally occurring viruses inject a part of their DNA into the hosts cell. It's possible to 'splice' the viruses DNA, and add new DNA sequences. In this case it would be this deadly sequence of DNA which would be injected by the virus into the host cell.

Now the scariest part of all this is the fact that for the past two years they have been doing research on what they call 'heat stable vaccinations.' They have been researching on creating vaccinations inside a food source. The foods they have tried are potatoes, and tomatoes. Now the company who was doing this research said they were quite successful, but they decided to stop research for fear of contamination into the food supply. Now they are doing research on vaccinations inside of non-edible plants.

Most vaccinations are the non-deadly form of a virus. So if they could splice this sequence into a virus, and then put the virus in some food source. The goal would be to kill a group of people or a person, and it would be very difficult to track down how these people died. And it could be a very specific weapon for murdering a select group of people.

i also agree with the poster who says this is wrong,
IT IS PROGRESS FOR PROGRESS SAKE !!!

wrong, wrong, wrong

No we know why the Bible predicts that men will become 'scarcer than gold' in the last days. These nuts are out to fulfill their population control wet dreams. As long as they reign supreme over what's left I suppose.....
