Towards a Minimal Cell By Jorge Bernardino de la Serna, University of Southern Denmark
One of the most ambitious endeavors of synthetic biology is creating “minimal cells” that fully recapitulate the functions of a natural cell—they capture energy, maintain ion gradients, store information, and mutate.
Each photomicrography shows a giant liposomes ~20-50µm in diameter comprised of fats and proteins from the surface of the mammalian lung alveoli without any chemical treatment.
