This is a major discovery that blurs the line between biotechnology and nanotechnology:

Discovery News : Discovery Channel: "The move, which comes after five years of research, is seen as the penultimate stage in the endeavor to create an artificial life form based entirely on a man-made DNA genome -- something which has tantalized scientists and sci-fi writers for years."

The possibility, indeed the probability, of artificial life could open up entirely new technological avenues from designer bacteria and viruses to new symbiotic organisms to living microscopic computers.
