Scientists have developed a DNA delivery method based on the use of carbon nanotubes as carriers of the DNA to plant cells. The technique seems to be easy to use and applicable to different plant species, for example to rucola. Its straightforward use enables application of the technique by DIY-biologists. Do the risks to humans and the environment caused by carbon nanotubes demand a safety evaluation?
