After reading this article I am reminded of the movie Jurassic Park. The novel by Michel Crichton (and to some extent the movie directed by Spielberg) try to show an interesting interplay between nature and complex networks. What these scientists don’t seem to understand is that there are balances not only in the networks of nature (ecology) but of those of mankind(e.g. food networks, socio-politico networks, comm networks, ect) . These networks extend beyond any degree of control that appears to exist within the scope of the GM lab. In fact, a very property of large complex systems (like the one that exists in the universe where this lab resides ) is that there are some variables that are impossible to compensate for. The book does a great job at illustrating how these variables can attempted to corrected for but ultimately they compound upon themselves. It is certainly worth a read even if you are familiar with the movie. Although, I doesn’t appear that these fish will have the same impact as the “dinosaur” monsters created in the book , but it is certain that some degree of oversight has occurred within this laboratory.
