Will We Soon Be Able to Download Vaccines on Our Computers?

  • Imagine a world where there are no vaccine shortages; once a vaccine for a new virus is developed you just simply download it and print it off at home and there’s no need to even visit the doctor to inject it. That just one of several subjects touched on by biologists E.O. Wilson and J. Craig Venter at this year’s WWW conference. They also talk about what it would take to build a new species from scratch and how it’s statistically probable that any life found on Mars will have an Earth origin.
