BBC Podcast: Artificial Life

Synthetic biology hit the headlines when Craig Venter recently announced the creation of Synthia ā€“ the first organism with a computer as a parent.

JCVI-syn1.0, as the artificial microbe is officially known, will become a poster child for synthetic biology. But it was created from known genetic sequences.

In this podcast, Roland Pease looks beyond Synthia, at the work of biologists and chemists hoping to recreate life from scratch.
