They might be shocked to hear that probably every ear of corn that's been sold in the United States was created by man, using the forerunner of bio-engineering called "cross-breeding." Instead of isolating a single gene or a few genes from one strain of corn and injecting it into the DNA of another, people crossed whole strains, hoping that the desired traits would be expressed.

Given the advances in stem-cell research, cloning and bio-engineering since Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein almost 200 years ago, it shouldn't have been too hard to create a creature that's both terrifying and deserving of our compassion.
The papers are organized into major topics, including mechanics and mechanisms, residual stress, fatigue and crack propagation, failure analysis, smart materials, computational methods, and bio-engineering. Individual paper topics include strain rate effect on transverse compressive strength of fiber composites, dynamic mechanical properties of MWNTs/phenolic nanocomposites, time-temperature equivalence for rocks, and grillage optimization with multiple objectives.
