Caulobacter ethensis - 2.0 : World's 1st fully Computer-generated Genome of a Living Organism

All the genome sequences of organisms known throughout the world are stored in a database belonging to the National Center for Biotechnology Information in the United States. As of today, the database has an additional entry: Caulobacter ethensis-2.0

It is the world's first fully computer-generated genome of a living organism, developed by scientists at ETH Zurich. 

However, it must be emphasised that although the genome for C. ethensis-2.0 was physically produced in the form of a very large DNA molecule, a corresponding organism does not yet exist.
