I saw their preprint ... looks like I was wrong, and they are not currently focusing on whole-genome reprogramming, but on circuit modeling using P systems, which I don't know much about.

Can you link the preprint? As a biologist I found the article unintelligible - but I would like to know what is being attempted.
