A: Summary The report is about the lab-made burger patty. Technology has reached a point, where scientists are able to make a burger patty in the lab. There are some issues that follow with this technology. One of them is the price of the burger patty is $300.000, which makes it impossible for a normal consumer to buy it. An another issue such as the taste will also come in to play, where it has a taste that satisfies the people and also the nutrients in the meat.
