In a recent paper in the journal Science, Venter and his colleagues ___1___ that they had created the smallest living and reproducing organism. Their creation is a simple cell, with only the genes that are essential for life; it is larger only than those found in viruses and other entities that rely on hosts(寄主) for ___2___ functions.

Venter and his team created their organism through a process of ___3___ and error. They began by using their knowledge of biology to deduce the minimum set of genes that would be required for life. However, that approach ___4___.

But there are 179 genes whose function is unknown. In other words, the purpose of nearly one-third of the genes, which needed to keep the organism ___7___, and reproducing remains a ___8___.
