Syn 2.0. Craig Venter develops a new bacteria

Recommended Posts

Craig Venter and his team have produced a reproducing bacteria  with only 473  genes.

Please see https://www.theguardian.com/science/2016/mar/24/landmark-lab-creates-synthetic-cell-with-minimum-genes-needed-for-life-craig-ventner

He and his team did not create this  replicator from scratch.  They started with a natural biot and pulled genes out until they fund a minimal genome 

that could reproduce.
