With the current development of modern technologies of space travel, the road to Mars will take a very long time. But scientists from the California-based Synthetic Genomics, Inc. (SGI) offer to transport the primitive forms of life to use something like "digital teleport". They managed to create and successfully test a device that is able to recreate the DNA of a living organism, following the sent instructions.

During a series of experiments, the experts were able to print viable influenza virus. It should be noted that artificially recreate the virus of humanity was possible in the past, but to do it automatically only if part of the car turned for the first time. The researchers of the Synthetic Genomics Inc. called his invention the "digital biological Converter".

Now the "Converter" — this is the prototype, tested on a short distance, but in the future with the help of this device, according to the experts, this way it will be possible to transfer biological information from the source of the disease the vaccine manufacturers, to print the necessary medications directly to the medical institutions and even teleport primitive life forms from Earth to Mars.

The Main element of the device is a DNA printer BioXP 3200. After receiving digital instructions printer starts from pre-prepared chemicals to assemble the DNA molecule. By the way, the thought of using a DNA printer "to send" life on Mars taken not from the ceiling: the founder of SGI Craig Venter have already discussed this possibility with the project Manager of SpaceX Elon Musk.

DNA BioXP 3200 printer

Interesting is the emergence of ideas about using DNA printer. In March 2017, the Chinese authorities announced the outbreak of the virus H7N7 and published online data on its DNA. After a few days, SGI was able to synthesize the genes of the virus, and then use them on another device to synthesize a vaccine. So the idea is to combine elements of different instruments into one and add the function "print on command from the outside." As one of the leaders of Synthetic Genomics Inc.,

"We have almost 10 years of dreaming about the possibility to transmit a "Fax" living organisms.
Our "digital biological Converter" it can become the same, than was the invention of the machine during the industrial revolution".
