Can I have a third arm please?

True genetic engineering around the corner?

What they're talking about here is not the type of genetic engineering we've had for years, where (for example) after years of work, they can produce a tomato that's more insect resistant, but rather the type of engineering where they have a ready-made set of components on the shelf that they can string together to do jobs. True engineering, not one-off "works of art" as one of the scientists put it.
