Devin G. Bost (an artistic interpretation)

The reason I'm a member: I am fascinated by synthetic biology. I professionally work as a software engineer, and I hope to make valuable contributions to this emerging field. I one day envision a world where doctors are replaced by medical engineers, checkups with the "doctor" are designed to analyze changes in our genome, and where we can literally upgrade our peripheral organs. I want eyes with night-vision, telescopic lenses, and the functionality of electron microscopes. I want lenses that are "scratch-free" due to an underlying organism that simply rebuilds the surface when it is scratched. I want roads constructed by microbes; moreover, I want these microbes to use available minerals to reconstruct the roads and prevent "potholes" from ever forming. That is why I am here: I want to change the world, forever.

Thanks for this great site. Let's all change the world.
