Time needed to grow morphs - healing vats?
The book says that growing a new morph (from genes, I guess? What are the rules for designing a new morph if your character is a genetic engineer, anyway? but that's a seperate topic) takes about a year. The book says that healing vats, with even a severed head, can examine the DNA and grow the rest of a body from it in a few days. Including implants if it has them on file. So if healing vats can grow a body from DNA in days, why does creating a new morph take so long? The book _does_ mention that using healing vats to alter morphs is 'dangerous', but the section on healing vats does not mention this or related rules and seems to indicate healing vats are pretty darn safe. Am I missing something? PS I hope I can play this game soon, it's great to see a transhumanist RPG setting!

Take a look at the section on programming new blueprints.
