The mad scientists are doing what it says in the headline. It takes a 'special' hormone to unlock ancient genes and allow them expression in an ant living today.....they'e also discovered that ants have a genetic 'monster tool kit' on board so no doubt we'll be hearing a fair bit more about this. Come back dolly the sheep all is forgiven! Some of the comments express varying views; ie "What gives them the right to play with nature"? To. "this could be what we need to cure disease". I find it a little freaky and given the arrogance of many learned intellectualpeople I'm more than a bit worried. I can imagine one being taken to a British pub so mates can see and then the thing escapes, you get the picture?

These supersoldiers occur naturally.
They just figured out how to trigger it.
Anyone reading? It is only a couple short paragraphs.
