BBSRC - JUNE 2008 - Synthetic biology: social and ethical challenges. RIVM - Synthetic biology. INSTITUT PASTEUR - Synthetic biology. BBSRC - Dossier : Synthetic biology. Background The synthetic biology priority falls within 'Exploiting New Ways of Working (ENWW)', one of three enabling themes in our current Strategic Plan.
World-class bioscience is critically dependent on new technologies, methodologies and resources. The ENWW enabling theme aims to encourage research that will yield the next-generation of these 'new ways of working' underpinning all of our research remit, in an era of rapid technological advancement. Synthetic biology is developing rapidly and is applicable to a wide range of biological problems. It could help to solve a number of major global challenges in fields including health and wellbeing, energy, food security and the environment. ACADEMIE DES PAYS BAS 25/09/08 Synthetic biology: creating opportunities.
Synthetic biology is the engineering of biology: the synthesis of complex, biologically based (or inspired) systems, which display functions that do not exist in nature.
This engineering perspective may be added at all levels of the hierarchy of biological structures – from individual molecules to whole cells, tissues and organisms. In essence, synthetic biology will enable the design of “biological systems” in a rational and systematic way. CSIRO - FEV 2010 - Enzymology and Synthetic BiologyCSIRO Entomology’s research is contributing to new bioindustries in a number.
CSIRO Ecosystem Sciences research is contributing to new bioindustries in a number of ways. 5 February 2010 | Updated 14 October 2011 Overview Our research focuses on the development of new industrial biotechnologies and biomaterials, environmental biotechnology, enzymology and sensory biology.
We are involved in research on: manipulating enzyme and structural protein function and structure to create new biochemical pathways and biomaterials understanding the biomolecular basis of odour and taste discrimination, leading to a biomimetic and bioinspired approach to rapid volatile sensing for food, health and security applications.
