AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH: First Computer-Generated Genome Could Lead To CUSTOM SYNTHETIC LIFEFORMS

Scientists at ETH Zurich have created the first fully computer-generated genome of a living organism. The brand-new genome, named Caulobacter ethensis-2.0, for now exists as one large DNA molecule and not a living organism itself, but the team says this is a huge step towards creating completely synthetic life and “medicinal” DNA molecules. Over a decade ago, a team led by geneticist Craig Venter created the first “synthetic” bacterium, which was basically a digital copy of the Mycoplasma mycoides genome. That was then implanted into recipient cells and found to be a viable version of the real creature, even being able to self-replicate. The new study builds off that prior work, and goes a step further towards completely synthetic life… (READ MORE)
