Miracles of Technology !!

After knowing about the possibility of human cloning, now it does not seem surprising the new development towards creating artificial life! The researcher move one step closer towards this invention. Here is some part of the news:

Scientists at the J. Craig Venter Institute, a research group that’s trying to create artificial life, moved one step closer to their goal by synthesizing the complete set of genes of a bacterium. The goal is to use artificial genomes to create bacteria designed to take on specific jobs, such as converting underground coal into a more easily extracted gas. The scientists previously inserted the genes of one type of bacteria into the cells of another. If they can use that method to insert the artificial genome into a cell, they’ll have created the first new life form controlled by man-made DNA.

It’s a wonderful breakthrough that could change the way we think about gene therapy,” said David Magnus, co-director of Stanford University’s Center for Biomedical Ethics.  “It would allow us potentially to create chromosomes exactly the same as a patient’s chromosome but with genes that have been corrected. This could be a future treatment for diseases.”
