Researchers simulate behavior of living 'minimal cell' in three dimensions

January 20, 2022

Scientists report that they have built a living “minimal cell” with a genome stripped down to its barest essentials – and a computer model of the cell that mirrors its behavior. By refining and testing their model, the scientists say they are developing a system that can predict how changes to the genomes, living conditions or physical characteristics of live cells will alter how they function.

They report their findings in the journal Cell.
