(DNAi Location: Manipulation > Revolution > Putting it together > James Watson's reaction to Asilomar)
I was depressed about Asilomar because I couldn't see when we were going to be able to start our experiments, was it going to be a six-month delay, several years. As it was, it turned out a couple of year delay and, but we were finally allowed to do what we did, what, what we wanted and it was wonderful. But for a couple of years I just thought about regulations, not about science.
