Is biotechnology creating a monster?

Article Abstract:

Acommercialization of science has characterized the biotechnology revolution and this is a first since scientific research used to be confined to academia. The broad-based nature of biotechnology research follows from this commercialization, as it is currently being carried out in 2,000 laboratories nationwide. Much of the research, focused on such goals as cosmetic enhancements, would seem to be frivolous. Federal regulation of the field has not kept up with its spread into the business world and research remains uncontrolled.
