It turns out that doing biology is really hard. There's a lot of tacit knowledge involved. Knowledge that might only be in one person's head that they haven't documented. And there are probably issues related to highly specific equipment.

This piece is funny, at least if you like tales of human purpose frustrated by an uncooperative universe.

It cites Overly honest methods.

Oh, my! This is pertinent to my interests. Er, the challenges of transmission of knowledge about technique, not developing bioweapons. Also, how laws really can regulate dangerous scientific research. Thank you for posting.
