NK603: Bioremediation or eugenic science ?

  • I often see this word at a numerous places but rarely a sound explanation to the inherent motivation of adopting bioremediation for synthetic biology, a subset of genetic engineering using live organisms as the media for creating new and artificial life forms.
  • Back in World-War 2, were the germans developing the eugenic science or were they "experimenting" new bioremediation techniques with organophosphate gases?
    • Is thus bioremediation a singular aspect of eugenics, especially for devices developed for the E.coli K-12 strain, a prokariote organism ?
  • What are the real objectives of Synthetic biology beyond inducing cancerous cells prematurely to mouses fed with genetically-modified corn ?
  • Is cancer detection over cancer prevention the culprit and main concern of Synthia design ?
  • Is not human based experimentation strictly forbidden by some public authority ?
    • If so, is not bioremediation a futile term to hiden eugenics into a philantropist hat?
  • Or is the people not the only authority which should encompass and lead scientific research from the hands of the governments and corporations?
  • Would the germans have approved bioremediation, assuming they knew Hitler was preparing a large-scale genocide ?
  • Why did the mouses developed severe mutations over a long-term period as they were fed corn grown for mass-consumption ?
    • Were the scientists who developed the strain of GE corn (NK603) knowledgable or were the mutations caused from mistakes in the protocol ?

Common food products suspected to contains GE corn.

  • canola oil (chips)
  • corn syrup (marshmallows)
  • corn itself (?)
  • hydrogenated vegetable oil (?)


"We make our world significant by the courage of our questions, and by the depth of our answers." ~Carl Sagan

"Pour faciliter économiquement la sélection du maïs, Monsanto a utilisé et maintenu au sein des plants GM gène marqueur de résistance à un antibiotique appelé NPTII (néomycine phosphotransferase II). Ce dernier produit dans la cellule végétale une protéine qui induit une résistance à la Kanamycine, antibiotique bien connu." 1
