Summary
The mystery of life can now be recreated in a lab. In this ABC News report Dr. Richard Besser explores how scientists were able to create a living cell in a lab and then have the cell replicate. Some of the implications may be frightening, but some are badly needed. This historic discovery can lead to the development of new vaccines and enhanced abilities to clean up oil spills.
