Synthetic biology is the design and construction of new biological parts, devices, and systems, and the re-design of existing, natural biological systems for useful purposes.
Synthetic biology researchers and companies around the world are harnessing the power of nature to solve problems in medicine, manufacturing and agriculture. In the near future, synthetic biology will transform how we grow food, what we eat, and where we source materials and medicines. Naturally, resereachers in our school are focusing on synbio projects aiming at improving algal and plant photosynthetsis and phyisology to boost future agricualtureal and energetic yields.
