No chance mate its very difficult. i had a go and left with a £700 hole in my pocket but no luck. It definitely requires a lab and expensive materials . And its illegal in UK. And I’m sure you need a permit in other countries.

Any GM plants should be under close scrutiny...lets say you were developing pesticide resistance for example, cross contamination would be a big worry.

Which would be safer & more reliable for obvious reasons.

What if your GM organism gets out in the wild?
