In the center of the exhibition there will be a visitors’lab. It is planned to have a setup called "The second creation" (or "Manmade evolution") is planned, showing different scientific approaches to artificial life: minimal genome, neurochips, synthetic biology and programmable artificial cells. Each approach shall be illustrated by a small exhibit and a 2-minute-audio-text about the aims, procedures, problems and status. To appear in 2009:
