Biotechnology: Mercury Clean Up -- A personal dream comes true

[Click on title for link to original article]

When genetics first became privy to my knowledge base, having watched Jurassic Park as a teenager, I started thinking of leguminous nitrogen fixing bacteria, and how we could one day "create" bacteria and modify bacteria, and clean up all the pollution we have caused!

I have since grown, since understood that pollution is somewhat, I repeat, only somewhat, over emphasized, and also that we will find a solution one day...

But just hearing this news, is re-assuring, and quite joyous. Finally, we get a second chance, thanks to a bunch of guys in Ohio! Kudos!!
