“‘Our project is trying to get it a little bit further into a standardization — a framework for how do you go about systematically evaluating a new technology so you’re looking at all the sorts of different interactions that could possibly happen,’ Morey says.”
Two red flags in that statement. First they intend to “standardize” releasing laboratory concocted organisms into nature.

It’s what gives scientists a bad name. All? They claim superiority over nature — with a straight face.
