Genetic Mutations

 If 20th-century biology was about taking living things apart to find out how they work, the new era is defined by putting them back together, but not necessarily as evolution commanded. Our mastery of manipulating DNA has evolved into an even more radical form of dabbling called "Synthetic Biology”.American biologist Craig Ventor announced in 2010 that he had created the world's first synthetic life form. Synthia, aka Mycoplasma mycoides JCVI-syn 1.0, was a cell whose genetic code had been assembled not by its parent, but by a computer.
