"Frankenstein" Doc 'creates' life

A U.S. biologist has experimented with reviving a dead bacterium, Mycoplasma capricolum.  He extracted dna strands from the bacteria and implanted it in the 'dead' bacteria bringing it back to life.

 Amidst ethics concerns and allegations that the doctor is "playing God" nobody seems to asking the right questions. I can't be the only one thinking this. Could this new development in re-animation be used to re-animate humans and if so would they be human or would they need to feed on the flesh of the living?
Artificial microbes could be developed for tasks like making vaccines or clearing pollution [or hastening the zombie apocalypse].
There have been no reports that the bacteria is feeding on the flesh of other bacteria, yet.

If you thought all of those zombie movies were fictional, maybe you should begin to think differently.  As for me, I'm ready for the zombie apocalypse.
