Meet Mycoplasma genitalium. This is the first organism that is entirely recreated in binary. Stanford scientists selected one of the simplest organisms around and M.genitalium is their test subject. They've collated data from 900 publications to account for everything going on inside the bacterial cell.
Scientists have created the first computer simulation on a complete organism. To do that, the team had to recreate cell division using the model. A single pass took almost 10 hours with MATLAB software running on a 128 core Linux cluster. The representation was so accurate it predicted what M. genitalium looked like from the genetic data itself.
Such simulations open the doors to discovering and understanding the biology of other diseases like cancer and Alzheimer's for example. Here's some footage to understand more:
