Coli, a bacterium found commonly in the environment and, more importantly, in the digestive tract of humans and other animals. As early as 1973, the potential risks posed by rDNA research were discussed at a meeting, the Conference on Biohazards in Biological Research, also known as Asilomar I, held in January 1973 at the Asilomar Conference Center, Asilomar State Beach, California.

To determine whether such projects should be approved or not, they turned to one very old law, the Plant Quarantine Act of 1912, which gave the USDA the authority to regulate plants that might carry pests or diseases that could harm agricultural crops, and the Plant Pest Act of 1957, which had similar provisions for plants imported to the United States (McHughen 2006). The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) followed a similar line, referring applications for the testing of genetically engineered organisms to its Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (Junod 2009).
