    Question: "is it appropriate to use emerging synthetic genomic engineering technology to build new forms of "life"? I would appreciate pros and cons as part of my research.

    Here is what I can think of:

    Ever since the creation of bacterial cells through a chemically synthesized genome in 2010, people are very excited about the possibility of generating some new forms of life or re-generating species that are extinct. In theory, it can work though there are a lot of challenges ahead. Here I just come up with a few examples. For single cellular organisms, such as the chemically synthesized ...
