Scientists create first artificial life

Posted on Friday, May 21 2010 @ 21:41:56 CEST by


A team of US researchers have created the first artificial life by constructing a bacterial cell using manufactured DNA.
The researchers constructed a bacterium's "genetic software" and transplanted it into a host cell.

The resulting microbe then looked and behaved like the species "dictated" by the synthetic DNA.
The advance, published in Science, has been hailed as a scientific landmark, but critics say there are dangers posed by synthetic organisms.

Some also suggest that the potential benefits of the technology have been over-stated.

But the researchers hope eventually to design bacterial cells that will produce medicines and fuels and even absorb greenhouse gases.
