Rats!

Check out the June issue of Fast Company for my story on SAGE Labs, a division of Sigma-Aldrich, and their groundbreaking work engineering rats for medical research. Rabbits, pigs, and even monkeys are next. Sigma also recently announced plans for the commercial development of genetically engineered silkworms that spin high-strength spider silk, for which there is growing demand in medical and industrial applications. Between Sigma and Monsanto, headquartered nearby, there’s a strong case to be made for St. Louis as the unlikely center of post-natural evolution today.
