The article implied that the researchers had to genetically modify the yeast, so I'd say completely infeasible. (Unless you can somehow get your hands on some of that modified yeast.)

Or bioengineer the yeast yourself. There's a movement of people bioengineering at their homes. Supplies can even be bought at places like this: http://www.the-odin.com/gene-engineering-kits/

Lol I had no idea until I was researching a book idea a couple years ago. Ironically, the idea led me to raddle and I abandoned the book I was doing research for. In a way those people are fighting the same battle most of us are fighting: to prevent the state from holding all the cards.
