DNA Breakthrough

I heard some amazing news from the States today, that a team of scientists built the entire DNA code of a common bacterium in the laboratory using blocks of genetic material. Apparently they are hoping to use the technique to produce organisms that can produce bio-fuels and take carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. An incredible breakthrough for science, this is bound to create large amount of spin off research for years to come.
