AbstractAn essay is presented on issues of identity and interests spawned by synthetic biology. It offers a distinction between identities and interests and suggests that identity issues should always prevail over interests when it comes to formulating public policies about synthetic biology. The author discusses one potential conflict over identities, which involves humankind's relationship with nature.
