 Craig Venter, a biologist and entrepreneur, announced an idea at a recent New York health conference to use 3D biological printers to print out biological molecules for vaccines via email.Venter, a scientist who helped to sequence the human genome and created synthetic life with homemade genes, said the process could revolutionize healthcare. The emails would contain a sequence of DNA that a 3D printer could use to synthesize a vaccine, New Scientist reports.DNA vaccines are not currently used in commercial vaccines for safety reasons, but the vaccines typically work well in experiments.Debora MacKenzie, a Brussels correspondent for New Scientist, said that the bio printer could theoretically distribute vaccines for both civilian and military uses.
