Many Germans are afraid of genetic engineering, according to Spiegel Online, the online offshoot of the German news magazine Der Spiegel, and Harvard’s George Church doesn’t do much to alleviate those fears.

In an online excerpt of a Q&A published in this week’s Der Spiegel, Church talks about recreating Neandertals, engineering humans to live to 120, making people resistant to viruses, and exchanging DNA with other species.

“Like no one else, molecular biologist George Church represents a guild that is prepared to try out anything that can be done, unconditionally,” Spiegel Online writes.
