University Engineers Create Code That Builds DNA Molecules

Prophecy Sign:  As it was in the days of Noah - genetic modification/manipulation

The science behind genetic, (DNA), manipulation and modification of both humans and animals alike is growing at an exponential rate.  We are now nearing the point when mankind can alter the creation of God which is exactly what was happening before the great flood of Noah.  It was during the Antediluvian  world when fallen Angels came to earth and made a complete mess of God's creation by altering the seed of mankind and animal kind alike.  Jesus warned that one of the signs of the last days would be a world which would begin to do the things that had occurred during the time of Noah, (Matthew 24:37). What separated Noah's times from any other age was not simply the evilness of men's hearts, but the strange events going on at the time, (genetic manipulation and modification - the creation of the Nephilim).

As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Mathew 24:37 NIV
University Engineers Create Code That Builds DNA Molecules
Researchers at the University of Washington have developed something that is just about as crazy as it sounds. That's right, computer code that can create DNA molecules, courtesy of some of the biggest innovation we've seen in a while.  Now let that one sink in for a minute. That may sound somewhat useless at first, but think about it. As far as practical application goes, this unique programming language creates a coded set of instructions to build DNA molecules, building on the concept of chemical reaction network theory, which is best described as an “area of applied mathematics that attempts to model the behavior of real world chemical systems,” which in this case, is none other than the building blocks of life, DNA itself. 

'Designer Babies:' Patented Process Could Lead to Selection of Genes for Specific Traits
A personal-genomics company in California has been awarded a broad U.S. patent for a technique that could be used in a fertility clinic to create babies with selected traits, as the frontiers of genetic enhancement continue to advance. The patented process from 23andMe, whose main business is collecting DNA from customers and analyzing it to provide information about health and ancestry, could be employed to match the genetic profile of a would-be parent to that of donor sperm or eggs. In theory, this could lead to the advent of "designer babies," a controversial idea where genes would be selected to boost the chances of a child having certain physical attributes, such as a particular eye or hair color. The technique potentially could also be used to create healthier babies, by screening out donors with genes that are predisposed to disease, either on their own, or in combination with the recipient's genes.

Wildlife: The Next Big Thing in Genetic Modification?
Scientists have been talking about how to save species from extinction and about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) for a long time. Now, they are combining the two and talking about genetically modifying wild animals to help them survive changing environments. “Even the most conservative estimates predict that 15–40% of living species will be effectively extinct by 2050 as a result of climate change, habitat loss and other consequences of human activities,” according to a comment article in the journal Nature. While a number of tactics commonly used to save species — from relocating populations to more suitable areas to bringing back keystone species, including top predators who have a positive cascading effect on the ecosystem – have been successful, scientists now want to add a new option called facilitated adaptation to the mix, which would involve genetic engineering.
