Scientists Talk Privately About Creating a Synthetic Human Genome
Sixty trays can contain the entire human genome as 23,040 different fragments of cloned DNA.

The prospect is spurring both intrigue and concern in the life sciences community because it might be possible, such as through cloning, to use a synthetic genome to create human beings without biological parents.
