Cell as Application Platform: Key Event In Human History?

Each cell of JCVI-syn3.0 contains just 473 genes, fewer than any other independent organism.

Craig Venter / humanity have created the basic technology to industrialize genes. So when they find the weird deep sea critter that extra carbon dioxide and poops water, it’s genes can be CRISPR-ed into this kind of minimized. cell and BAM waste becomes useful.

I think Venter’s work, this science, can also be regarded as art as sculpture. One of the gear artworks in history.

Hopefully this doesn’t get totally or of control and destroy the world.

 

‘Minimal’ cell raises stakes in race to harness synthetic life

Michael Lewis/Corbis Outline Genomics entrepreneur Craig Venter has created a synthetic cell that contains the smallest genome of any known, independent organism. Functioning with 473 genes, the cell is a milestone in his team’s 20-year quest to reduce life to its bare essentials and, by extension, to design life from scratch.
