Researchers Create First Animal With Redesigned Genetic Code

In natural living organisms 20 amino acids are used, assembled in different combinations to make the tens of thousands of different proteins needed to sustain life. A Cambridge University team have re-engineered the nematode worm's gene-reading machinery to include a 21st amino acid, not found in nature. The work could give biologists "atom-by-atom control" over molecules in living organisms.
