PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Biology is the study of life. Science says it is making huge advancements, Catholics issue a warning to the scientists; what is it that stirs up a huge amount of controversy? Scientists are finally attaining their goal of creating synthetic DNA. Genetic Engineers have actually tuned synthetic DNA into a living organism. New drugs, foods, fuels, and others could be created from this development. The advancement hasn't happened overnight, and there is still an extended road ahead before these breakthroughs can definitely be made. In either case though there's knowledge now that this is fully feasible, leaving the potentials endless.
