    Biology is the study of life. Science says it is making huge advancements, Catholics issue a warning to the scientists; what is it that stirs up a huge amount of controversy? Scientists are finally attaining their goal of creating synthetic DNA. Genetic Engineers have actually tuned synthetic DNA into a living organism. New drugs, foods, fuels, and others could be created from this development. The advancement hasn't happened overnight, and there is still an extended road ahead before these breakthroughs can definitely be made. In either case though there's knowledge now that this is fully feasible, leaving the potentials endless.
