Genetically engineered organisms already produce some highly valuable products for us. Insulin used to be harvested from the pancreases of pigs, but now stockpiles of human insulin can be made using a fermentation process with bio-engineered bacteria.

Just check out these links on the versatility of yeast.

After you’ve finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.
