I agree with Tracy on the "is this ethics" side of things.  A lot of the 
so-called ethical considerations of molbiol disappear when viewed in 
context (tho not all). 

1.  Animal genes in plants that are going to consumed by vegetarians.
2.  Animal genes in humans and the reverse (probably far off for the 
former...)
3.  Using genetically engineered products to enhance sports performance
4.  Is amniocentesis and gay genes anywhere in your remit? 

Sorry if this isn't what you're after.  And I know some of these are 
farfetched and possibly irrelevant.
