"Being able to create a microscopic 3D matrix is a big leap forward for true bioengineering. The matrix can act as a scaffold for positioning cells by means of chemical markers telling them where to grow - much in the way that the extracellular matrix in living tissue does. In this way, complicated structures such as capillaries can be “printed.”"

A Day in the Life of a Paper Engineer

I never knew "paper engineer" was a real occupation. It sounds fun. :)

Matthew Shlian (http://mattshlian.com/) "works within the increasingly nebulous space between art and engineering. As a paper engineer, Shlian's work is rooted in print media, book arts, and commercial design, though he frequently finds himself collaborating with a cadre of scientists and researchers who are just now recognizing the practical connections between paper folding and folding at microscopic and nanoscopic scales.

An MFA graduate of Cranbrook Academy, Shlian divides his time between teaching at the University of Michigan, mocking up new-fangled packaging options for billion dollar blue-chips, and creating some of the most inspiring paper art around."

BBC takes a look at the cutting edge of synthetic biology, and the ethical debate surrounding it.
  The video does feature mutant spider DNA but the only thing that gets infected is a goat, and it didn't start climbing walls.  Still it seems that with great power comes great responsibility in syn. Bio.  Well worth the hour to watch it.
