I do think there is a lot of potential if you have a compelling product and people are willing to pay a premium for that. I think that is what Apple has shown.

The potential for synthetic biology and biotechnology is vast; we all have an opportunity to create the future together.

I am interested in seeing how a certain situation can develop with potential accidents. First, I am inspired by the acts of potential collaborators.
