Building with Biology

Building with Biology

November's issue of Horizon Magazine has a special focus on Synthetic Biology:

“Could machines, technologies and devices made with micro-organisms and bacterial cells soon be a part of our daily lives? Will modified cells be a part of the medical treatments we take, the food we eat, the fuels we use? 

November’s issue of Horizon takes a look at the cutting-edge technologies known as synthetic biology which are bringing together engineering and biology to create completely new systems and innovations.”
