It only costs about 3 cents to destroy a human. The vitamins and minerals in a human body are worth about $15. To create a human, with our modern technology, from scratch, would require only the cost of living for one woman for 9 months. Harvard obviously has no idea about what appropriate technology is. Hell, you could do it for almost nothing with appropriate nanotech and a big hunk of CHON (and $15 of trace minerals).
