Synthetic Biology unlike Bio-engineering or Biology is a new area in Science and Technology. Looking at the results from the questionnaire, alot of people do not understand what synthetic biology really is about. The results also convey that people fear that standardised biological parts and devices can be modified and used for the harm of the public.
