Its really fascinating that some researchers were able to create the first synthetic cell. Well, the cell itself is not synthetic, only its DNA!!! They copied an existing bacterium’s DNA, then they used a computer to read and decode the the the letters of the genetic code, and used a machine to make a copy from chemical counterparts. Then they replicated the DNA a billion times, and those bacteria were able to be controlled by the first synthetic DNA.
In my opinion, I think its a scientific breakthrough, because the possibilities are endless. Those bacteria can be used hopefully in treating diseases and things like that. Also, they can “experience” how life first evolved and whatnot. Idk, what do you think?
