Nuclear Disaster “Pharming” Kit May Yield Cures

A team of leading edge adventurers and free thinkers have assembled a Disaster “Pharming” Kit in the hope to arm amateur bio-prospectors with the tools they need to collect mutated mushrooms, algae, and plants which might contain the next miracle cure or future food. According to the brains behind this new movement it’s also a new way to look at the idea of bio-prospecting, which may not yet happen on nuclear disaster sites, but definitely happens in other environments as pharma companies race to find useful new plants. Think of the scientists rushing to discover and preserve genetic variations in a rainforest before it is clear cut. The only difference with this approach is the genetic mutations are man-made instead of taking millions of years of isolated evolution.
