Synthetic Cell has been made in USA

“Researchers in the US have developed the first synthetic living cell. Their work, which many scientists have called a landmark study, is a key step towards the design and creation of new living things.” (from BBC News)

The scientists made the DNA in the cells from chemicals in the lab and inserted this synthetic DNA into a bacteria. The bacteria then became the first man-made living organism.
