On Thursday,coach bags, the founder of the Craig Venter Institute said, "We just announced the first cell totally controlled by a synthetic chromosome, one that we made by starting with the genetic code in the computer, four bottles of chemicals, and building every one of the million-plus base pairs in the right order, and then finally having this large molecule, inserting it in a recipient cell. coach outlet
molecule started to be read and transformed that cell into a totally new species."

Venter says that cell can survive and reproduce itself according to the computer generated DNA sequence.

The creation of the firstcoach handbags synthetic cell has raised hopes that it could eventually lead to new fuels, better ways to clean polluted water, faster vaccine production, and more.

Venter, a Maryland-based genome-mapping pioneer, said his team's project paves the way for designing organisms that work differently from the way nature intended for a wide range of uses.
