A step closer to 'synthetic life'

BBC NEWS | Science & Environment | A step closer to ‘synthetic life’.

In what has been described as a step towards the creation of a synthetic cell, scientists have created a new “engineered” strain of bacteria.

A team successfully transferred the genome of one type of bacteria into a yeast cell, modified it, and then transplanted into another bacterium.

This paves the way to the creation of a synthetic organism – inserting a human-made genome into a bacterial cell.
