Synthetic Life

Creation of a Bacterial Cell Controlled by a Chemically Synthesized Genome” is the title of my current publication of the month. In the recently released paper, the transplantaion of a digitised genome sequence into a bacteria, resulting in the creation of mycoides carrying only this artificial DNA, is described.
As usual the reference can be found on my webpage.

As I missed to put the May issue online … here’s that as well:
Regression of advanced rat and human gliomas by local or systemic treatment with oncolytic parvovirus H-1 in rat models” reports on rat models testing a virus, harmless to healthy human cells but efficient in killing certain tumor cells.
And again the reference can be found on my webpage.

Enjoy reading!
