Lee Silver is an expert on biotech and public policy at Princeton University. He is the author of several books including, Remaking Eden: How Genetic Engineering and Cloning Will Remake the American Family. No time is better to get the thoughts of the renowned author than election season.

Silver has been outspoken about biotech policy differences between the Bush and the Obama administrations, and we ask him to extend his thoughts on the upcoming election. He also weighs in on California's Prop 37 requiring the labeling of genetically modified foods. Lee says it's a "stupid" thing. That even if the law is passed, it is not even doable.

Other topics include the controversy over the modification of the bird flu virus and whether the science should have been published, and GenePeeks, Silver's new company that is creating virtual children.
