Discovery Science to create 'Synthetic Life' at 8 pm on 27 July

#1
Quote: Discovery Science will air a one-hour special episode - Creating Synthetic Life, on 27 July at 8 pm.

The channel has documented the five-year journey of scientist Dr J Craig Venter and his quest to produce life synthetically.

Venter had, on 20 May this year, created history by synthetically creating a living, self-replicating cell.


The new show takes viewers inside Dr Venter’s quest and reveals the failures, successes and breakthrough moments of Venter, Nobel Laureate Hamilton Smith, Dr Clyde Hutchison and J Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) researchers as they sought to create a synthetic single-celled organism.

The show throws light on how the synthetic cell created and what exactly does this development mean for the human race. Is DNA sequence alone enough to create a living creature? Where exactly will this development take us? Could this technology be used for negative purposes? What are the ethical concerns we must weigh before using it?
