Scientists Alter Life’s Blueprint, Begin Building DNA from Scratch

At Jef Boeke’s lab, you can whiff an odor that seems out of place, as if they were baking bread here.
But he and his colleagues are cooking up something else altogether: yeast that works with chunks of man-made DNA.

Scientists have long been able to make specific changes in the DNA code. Now, they’re taking the more radical step of starting over, and building redesigned life forms from scratch. Boeke, a researcher at New York University, directs an international team of 11 labs on four continents working to “rewrite” the yeast genome, following a detailed plan they published in March.

Their work is part of a bold and controversial pursuit aimed at creating custom-made DNA codes to be inserted into living cells to change how they function, or even provide a treatment for diseases. It could also someday help give scientists the profound and unsettling ability to create entirely new organisms.

The genome is the entire genetic code of a living thing. Learning how to make one from scratch, Boeke said, means “you really can construct something that’s completely new.”

The research may reveal basic, hidden rules that govern the structure and functioning of genomes. But it also opens the door to life with new and useful characteristics, like microbes or mammal cells that are better than current ones at pumping out medications in pharmaceutical factories, or new vaccines. The right modifications might make yeast efficiently produce new biofuels, Boeke says.

never try to fight a wolfslayer. 101.

Petri dish is funny as fark…. lol

Wolf Slayer says:

Dahbizz should re title this, 'my daddy got thrush via a yeast infection' true!

Wolf Slayer says:

There's no such thing as a 'fallen' one, nope! he's merely a cast out one instead.
…it's what he received for being a naughty jealous boy. simple! -he didn't 'fall' by his own choice, he's just not that smart. 🙂 -making a bunch of Barbie dolls and insisting the lifeless little things worship you or else, is borderline humorous.

galen jack says:

yeast overgrowth will ruin your life.
It would be better to detect explosives with fire than make a super yeast monster.

Charles Murry says:

Cancer = Candida Albicans = Yeast, which is why they say sugar and starches and preservatives feed cancer… because they do. The idea that cancer is just your own cells that one day decide to mess up and go berserk is pretty ludicrous to anyone who is trained in this stuff. There have been certified M.D.s like Dr. Simoncini that said the same thing. If they end up creating strains of "super" yeast, we may end up seeing "super" cancer.. since that's how cancer spreads through the fungal mycelial form of candida, maybe they are trying to turn it into a delivery system for something else…

Scratch? More like getting a cake from the box. Y

that's kewl

Serg Martinez says:

This doesn't even sound like a bad concept like this daboo says, there's a fine line to DNA research… If Jesus arrives what then? will he vanish evil doesers in thin air?? what is this experiment opens new ideas to anything? I say we should take anything into consideration of there research and maybe think other wise or acknowledge…. all possibilities and endless..

Winsome Smith says:

what they are doing is creating soul-less beings, demons.

Mark Jacob says:

morally I feel myself you don't touch what almighty God created..

Some Body says:

WHICH IS THE NAME OF THOSE ALIENS OR EXTRATERRESTRIALS?

Some Body says:

ALIENS FROM ANOTHER PLANET CAME TO EARTH LOOKING FOR RESOURCES. THEY START TO WORK FOR LONG TIME TO GET THOSE RESOURCES. ONE DAY THE ALIENS BECOME TIRED. THEN THEY DECIDED TO CREATE ARTIFICIAL LIFE. HUMANS WHERE GENETICALLY CREATED BY THOSE ALIENS FROM ANOTHER PLANET. THOSE ALIENS MIXED THEIR DNA WITH THE APES. WHAT DO THINK???

Some Body says:

my question here to all of you: WHO CREATED THE HUMANS???????

Stephen Cook says:

Fallen Angel research and Technology in play there. (FARTECH).

mayhem beading says:

Yeast isn't only in bread, it's EVERYWHERE. This could be DISASTER if this gets loose.

greenskeeper59 says:

Genesis 6:4 all over again. Only in a lab this time.

chip sramek says:

The movie "The Island of Dr Moreau was a tell.

Karen Dixon says:

Horrors… God already told us that men will be stung by scorpions the size of horses… while they curse God for something they created…

Cody says:

Come to the Lord, he loves you and wants you to be his child.
Surrender, repent, pray and read the bible as our time here is getting short.
Praise the Lord!
