Alien: Covenant – How Did David Create the Neomorphs?

By now we’ve hopefully all seen Alien: Covenant. If you haven’t, go see it right away! It’s awesome, and this has spoilers. After you’ve seen it, you’ll probably have a few questions, just as I did. The main thing that left me wondering, was precisely HOW David did all of his genetic manipulation to create the neomorphs. His laboratory looks like a medieval dungeon, after all. Does the pathogen have sentience? What’s happening on the molecular level?

Beyond this, do these kinds of stories bias the public about our own efforts to attempt genetic modification? Are people afraid of GMOs because they are used to movies where the products of this kind of tinkering are killing machines with bonus mouths and acid for blood?

Let’s investigate the details of David’s work, as well as our own, when it comes to artificial selection and genetic modification!
