Asilomar conference

Asilomar conference

A meeting, in 1975, of genetic engineers who had become alarmed at the possibility of creating potentially dangerous new micro-organisms by recombinant DNA techniques. The scientists agreed to call for a world-wide moratorium on certain classes of experiment.
