Chemists claim to have created the world's first DNA molecule made almost entirely of artificial parts.
The finding could lead to improvements in gene therapy, futuristic nano-sized computers, and other high-tech advances, the Japanese researchers say.'
DNA already 'powers' computers – they're just called the human body.
