Experts believe first gene doping cases are around the corner(2004, Apr 17) Associated Press, by Toby Sterling [link]

This article derives from the Gene doping seminar in Utrecht. The meeting was sponsored by WADA and NeCeDo and was scientific in nature. Presenters included Ted Friedmann and Olivier Rabin. Scientists were generally pessimistic at the prospect of gene doping and the meeting emphasied the need for funding research into tackling this problem (but not ethical research!).

Scientists again predict it will not be long before this is a big problem for elite sport, suggestnig that it will appear first in animal sports.
