Scientists working to make a synthetic life form reported a major step forward, saying they had created an artificial genome and used it to bring a hollowed-out bacterium back to life.
They hope to use their stripped-down version of a bact
Taking a significant step toward the creation of synthetic forms of life, researchers reported that they had manufactured the entire genome of a bacterium by stitching together its chemical components.
Scientists had previously constructe
