Synthetic Biology

Synthetic biology is one of the most exciting areas of current global research – and the UK is a world leader. As a technology it seeks to design and engineer biologically based parts, novel devices and systems as well as redesign existing, natural biological systems. As an approach, it offers the potential to help society meet some of the major challenges we face in the 21st century, in healthcare, energy, agriculture and the environment.
