Creating new life forms in laboratory

Posted on: January 29, 2006

Ever since chemist Stanley Miller created organic compounds from simple building blocks like water, methane, and ammonia, the idea of creating life and thus peering into its possible origins, has fascinated biologists.

Is it possible to build a “protocell” or the most primitive life form from scratch? A cadre of pioneer scientists are trying to do just that. This fascinating quest and current advances in steps of creating life are described in a recent New Scientist article.

Hey, the article is really really nice. The intiatives to build life from the scratch are quite grand as far their vision goes. However, they are equally exciting. Moreover, infinite number of applications wait to be realised. Projects such as these can atleast make few of those applications a reality.
