Grow new body parts. Is it possible?

There must be a way to get the viruses in Belcher's research to somehow use the cellulose from Lee's bacteria to create something more complex. My thinking is that eventually you could get them to make something like a skin graph and maybe even eventually an artificial organ. Now you could get a proof of concept by having the viruses create just a more complex clothing structure around a mold like what Lee was talking about.
I am not a scientist but I really think there is something here. I would appreciate any incite into whether or not this idea could work.
Thank you.
