“Creation of Artificial Life Brought a Step Closer by DNA Transplant”
by Mark Henderson   
August 1st, 2007

Craig Venter, the controversial biologist who led the private effort to map the human genome, has moved closer to his goal of creating the first artificial life form by replacing the entire genetic code of one microbe with that of another.

The groundbreaking experiment has in effect turned a bacterium into a different species by substituting its DNA with that of a close relative. The success opens the way for doing the same thing with a genome that has been man-made from scratch, to create synthetic life. See Genesis 3:22, 23
