Teen Slammed for Injecting Himself With DNA Containing Bible, Koran Verses


A French teenager has injected himself with a DNA sequence he claims contained text from the Bible and Koran, prompting fierce criticism from those involved in the specialized science. Adrien Locatell, from Grenoble in France, translated the passages into DNA code in order to generate proteins that he could inject into his body.

The experiment was not without grave risks, however. Void of any formal training as a geneticist, Locatelli risked doing serious harm to himself, particularly as he had no prior knowledge of the effects that the proteins would have on his body. The high school student claimed that he attempted the bizarre feat, which involved him injecting the solution into both thighs, because he "wondered whether it would be possible."

DNA consists of chemicals that are assigned the letters ACGT. The various combinations of these letters equate to the coding of genes.
