Synthetic biology is an interdisciplinary field of science that combines biology and engineering to create novel biological systems and organisms with specific functions. This field has emerged in the last decade and has quickly become an essential tool in modern biotechnology, as it allows researchers to design, build and control complex biological systems.
Understanding the Science of Synthetic Biology
Synthetic biology aims to create new biological parts, devices, and systems by engineering biological components such as DNA, RNA, and proteins. These components are designed to work together to create a specific biological function, similar to the way electronic components work together to create a computer. This can be achieved by using the principles of genetics, molecular biology, and computer science to design, build and test synthetic biological systems.
Applications of Synthetic Biology
Synthetic biology has many potential applications in various fields such as medicine, energy, and the environment. In medicine, … Read More
