Researchers in the laboratory of George Church have designed and synthesized an E. coli genome with more than 200,000 DNA-base changes—the most highly modified bacterial genome yet. The changes they made apply to DNA segments that code for protein building, but in a way that doesn’t alter the proteins’ structure or function. Read about the
