    Exclamation Scientists create first living synthetic cell with computer, mix of chemicals

    "The achievement caps 15 years of work by a large team of researchers, led by Craig Venter of Human Genome Project fame, who engineered a chromosome and inserted it into a bacterium to create a new living entity.

    "This is the first self-replicating species that we've had on the planet whose parent is a computer," Venter told a teleconference presented Thursday by the journal Science, which published the work."

    I think this is very interesting, and will be a excellent tool for fighting viruses.

    That is really exciting and super cool news.



    I just hope we can keep the technology out of Monsanto's hands... god knows what we will be eating 10 years from now if they get their lawyers on it.

    If we can get low environmental impact, meatless meat that is taste and texture wise the same I would be willing to give it a try.
