Synthetic cell is a giant leap for science, and could be bigger still for mankind
"Scientists have succeeded in creating artificial life in a test tube, in a development which promises to revolutionise biotechnology.
"The research opens the way for scientists to create new life forms that can be genetically programmed to carry out a variety of functions, such as producing carbon-free fuel or made-to-order vaccines and providing new forms of food and clean water. However, the study also raises ethical concerns about the technology falling into the wrong hands, and, for instance, being used to make biological weapons, or by scientists to "play God" with life."
