How Canadian researchers reconstituted an extinct poxvirus for $100,000 using mail-order DNA | Science | AAAS
This is kinda bad, but it was known that this was going to happen eventually. The mail order DNA/protein synthesis companies do screen the orders, but small enough fragments spread out over enough companies would evade detection. Now all it takes is a reasonably well educated individual (read bioengineering grad student), and oh hey, a certain class of extremists tend to originate from engineering backgrounds due to a black/white worldview and then...

Functionalized olefin cross-coupling to construct carbon–carbon bonds : Nature : Nature Publishing Group
Apparently, using ethanol, silane, and an iron catalyst, they can join functionalized olefins in mild conditions, allowing the much easier synthesis for a whole load of new chemicals at lower cost.
