Submitted by Okian Warrior
Okian Warrior (537106) writes "Scientific American is running an interview with three biohackers who posted a Kickstarter campaign to crowdsource a bioengineered glowing plant. They asked for $65,000, but by the close of their campaign they had raised a remarkable $484,013. It is the first genetic engineering kickstarter project.

In exchange for the donations Antony Evans, Kyle Taylor and Omri Amirav-Drory promised to distribute the genetically modified seeds to supporters. More than 6,000 backers across the U.S. will be rewarded with seeds that were not vetted by any regulatory body for human safety."
