Creating Synthetic Life

Behind the stories of opening Pandora’s Box, Prometheus Unbound, The Genie and the Bottle, and Frankenstein, there actually is a significant science story that needs to be told about the work of one group of synthetic biologists. This program is the result of exclusive seven-year access to the scientific team of J. Craig Venter, who, for the first time in human history, has created life and must grapple with the implied ethical dilemmas that inevitably arise. Directed by David Conover. Produced by Compass Light Productions and Science Channel, a Discovery Company.
