ABSTRACT
The article examines the impact of synthetic genomes on bioethics, law, technology, interests and identities. It explores how synthetic biology is being defined and identifies four major streams of scientific and technological developments. It analyzes the challenges that synthetic biology causes to public policy and shows how debates on embryonic stem cell research and genetically modified foods incurred different discourses in the U.S. and Great Britain.
