If I have to say whether I'm for or against manipulating genes, I will err on the side of caution and say absolutely against.

Introducing unatural processes into your fragile biosphere is chancing ruining it for yourself and your progeny.  Just because you have the ability to do something doesn't mean you have the right to do it.

Next thing you know they will put a chicken in a duck, put the duck in a turkey, then deep fry it. Ah, the miracles of science!

All this messing around with nature makes me uncomfortable. What else are the doing in their hidden laboratories in the name of science?

From the article:

"The ultimate goal is to ”use this system to propagate endangered species or potentially bring back an extinct one,” according to a recent TEDx talk by Mike McGrew, a scientist at the Roslin Institute who collaborates extensively with the Dubai team."

Natural selection and environmental suitability determine extinction.  We can bring back the mammoth but where will they live?  Obviously the chain that supported them died and then they died.  This is wrong.

It would be nice to bring back animals that were forced into extinction by people and not by natural selection. I know this can't be done with animals that are already gone, (I would love to see a real Dodo!) but if we collect what we need from very endangered species now maybe we can bring them back later.
