From Metroids to Plasmids: Genetic Engineering in Gaming

Have you ever wanted to own a floating, energy-leeching brain-monster as a pet? Have you ever thought, "Gee, I wish I could shoot bees and fire out of my hands."? Come chat with a trio of genetic engineers about some of gaming’s most awesome examples of genetic engineering and how scientists are making things like metroids and human genetic editing a reality!
