In this paper the author explores the bioethical issues concerning with the creation of the laboratory animal model known as a chimera. The author argues that these issues need to be placed within the context of the politics of biology, or biopolitics. Rather than power over bodies and populations per se, the new biopolitics has to do with control over the tissues, systems and information that are the basis and manifestation of life in its various forms. This new political struggle is vastly more subtle and in some ways potentially more powerful than more familiar examples like the ability to terminate a pregnancy or certain gross efforts to manage heredity, and many more parties will be in a position to compete with the state for biopower than in the past.
