Synthetic biology: Custom-crafted chromosomes
In the space of a few decades, researchers have gone from cloning individual genes to designing sophisticated multi-gene circuits and even reconstructing entire bacterial and yeast genomes. Getting to this point has required considerable progress on multiple fronts, including ready access to high-quality DNA synthesis and the ability to string together multiple gene fragments into larger assemblies. However, the complexity of synthetic genomics rapidly increases as scientists move to bigger and more ambitious constructs, and many hurdles remain to be overcome before the field of genome engineering reaches full maturity.
This technology feature will cover:
• New tools for synthetic biologists
• Challenges in large DNA assembly
• Service providers and “biofoundries”
