A team of scientists managed to create the first artificial cell

May 22nd, 2010
A group of researchers led by the discoverer of the human genome, Craig Venter, has managed to create for the first time in history an artificial cell. Cell is the first man-made, an achievement with countless applications in the future, scientists stressed. “This is the first cell constructed and we can call it synthetic because it is derived entirely from a synthetic chromosome, made in a chemically synthesized chemically, after starting with information in a computer,” Venter confirmed the journal Science, which gathers the study. The team will now go further and future use of their achievement. “It is a powerful tool for designing biologically whatever we want”, since, according to Venter, could be used to produce fuel, to design new algae that absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and even to make better vaccines.
