It’s alive (synthetically)!

Dr. Craig J. Venter has created something you may want to take notice of.

What Venter has created is “A bacterial cell controlled by a chemically synthesized genome” Basically, it’s a cell that had its genetic code created via computer and is now capable of self-replication.

I’m no scientist, so all the big words make me dizzy. What I do understand from this is that this is an awesome- and maybe a  little scary- time we’re living in.
