No I did not, I've been reading about the topic since the news broke.  Once again.  This is a major technological achievement to be able to replicate the genome.  It is not, however, synthetic life.  This will not allow man to create a whole new organism.  We have had the technology to insert different type of DNA into bacterial DNA for awhile now.  We have recently been able to splice different genes together to make specific products.

Whatever they are saying about this being the door to opening all these new great technologies, they are right.  However, being able to code a whole new genome to form a properly working and replicating organism is still years and years away.
