Craig Venter, known for his controversial leadership in deciphering the human genetic code, has constructed a synthetic chromosome which is the basic code needed in order to create life. Speculation is building that he is about announce the creation of the first artificial life form on earth. The hope is that custom life forms may one day be used to digest formerly indigestible things such as cellulose, and turn them into fuel in order solve the energy crisis, or to digest green house gas to ease global warming.
