Biotechnology Code of Ethics

  For a brighter world with trees and everything . . .

     No cloning office mates without permission.

    If you create a new species, please don't let it out.

    Ebola goes on the top shelf of the fridge only; personal snacks go on the bottom.

    If you are going to cause a major ecosystem perturbation, could you please clean up afterwards?

    Please be sensitive to religious folks. It is not considered discreet to proclaim, "I am become death, destroyer of worlds!" when cloning a new bacterium.
