GMOs can now be built with an automatic ‘self-destruct’ clause to prevent escape

One of the biggest fears surrounding genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is that they might escape from the lab and contaminate the environment. It’s not just paranoia; contamination is a very real possibility. Lab dishes and industrial vats can — and do — break, and workers’ clothes can inadvertently become escape vessels for lab-created GMOs.
