Question: What is synthetic biology?

Keywords: , ,

  1. Dear Sophie and Sarah, thanks for your interest to learn about Synthetic Biology. I would nominate this as the best question ever (since I like synthetic biology) but obviously it wouldn’t be fair to all other good questions.
    Ok, Synthetic biology is a multidisciplinary field combining molecular biology, genetic engineering, computer science and many other fields and it aims to design, construct and create new biological systems inspired by but not found in nature for the benefit of public and environment. At this point I want to direct you guys to a youtube video explaining synthetic biology and iGEM competition. This video is made by our 2012 synthetic biology team at Macquarie Uni. Also this is my debut video as director I hope you enjoy it.
