Robert Hooke was the first person to discover a cell from the bark of a tree using a primitive microscope . He observed dead cells.
Scientists at JCVI constructed the first cell with a synthetic genome in 2010. They destroyed the DNA in those cells and replaced it with DNA that was designed on a computer and synthesized in a lab. This was the first organism in the history of life on Earth to have an entirely synthetic genome.
