Last year 2010 biologists were finally able to make large enough pieces of DNA to create an entire artificial genome.

Since then they have been working to create the first living creatures with a completely artificial genome.

Microbes whose entire collection of genes was edited on a computer and assembled by machines.

in the future, synthetic biologists could generate cells that efficiently produce biofuels, drugs and other industrial products.

Generating New Living Organisms.
