Researchers engineer artificial cells that harnesses photosynthesis to perform designer reactions [Registered]

In the quest to build an artificial cell, there are two approaches: The first, re-engineer the genomic software of a living cell. The second, focuses on cellular hardware, building simple, cell-like structures from the ground up that mimic the function of living cells. One of the biggest challenges in this second approach is mimicking the intricate chemical and biological reactions required for cells to perform complex behaviours.…
