DNA technology and evolution of the Central Dogma

Technological advances in molecular biology have now developed to the point where it is possible to store large amounts of DNA sequence in databases and resynthesize this DNA at distant locations or later dates. In the near future, significant and growing proportions of organismal DNA sequence will be captured digitally, and it will become commonplace to reconstruct genomes by chemical synthesis.
