    They simply created an organism containing synthetic nucleotides, rather than the first semisynthetic organism itself.

    Venter and Gibson were at it back in 2010 with a synthetic genome.

    Although it is still fascinating and opens up a world of potential.

    What a time to be a molecular biologist (I might actually get a job at the end of my education).
