Synthetic DNA
Posted: 20 May 2014

In a previous post, we reported that scientists had built a synthetic yeast model from designer DNA - DNA that had been streamlined and strung together in the lab. Now scientists have gone one step further and created new base pairs for DNA - actually inserting original code of their own making - which was successfully incorporated into a self-replicating bacteria.

"In nature, DNA base ...

When we published this MindBullet in 2007, we thought that it would be decades before people started churning out artificial life forms from computer designs. But this report of a computer-designed chromosome surviving replication in a yeast cell makes it look like a scenario that has come a whole lot closer.

Of course, it's going to be some time before we can manufacture dragons and orcs, but ...

Genetic-based advertising is said to be closer than we think. With Big Data as a precursor, it doesn't sound too far off, right? However, trust and consumer rights will be the keys to success for companies like Miinome.
