Strange Science: Creating Synthetic Cells

Biophysicists have been attempting to create synthetic cells for at least 20 years, but in late 2018, their attempts were finally getting close to producing results.

Advances in microfluidic technologies have paved the way for the creation of synthetic cells, as these technologies “allow scientists to coordinate the movements of minuscule cellular components.” The microfluid allows the creation of liposomes and mitochondrion, both of which are necessary building blocks for cells. Now all the biophysicists need to do is to find a way to integrate these pieces with the other pieces they have developed.
