The Science and Applications of Synthetic and Systems Biology
by Eileen Choffness, David Rellman and Leslie Pray
Publisher: NAS Press
Size: 32 MB
This issue explores the current state of the science of synthetic biology, including its dependency on systems biology; discussed the different approaches that scientists are taking to engineer, or reengineer, biological systems; and discussed how the tools and approaches of synthetic and systems biology were being applied to mitigate the risks associated with emerging infectious diseases.
Participants discussed how these advanced technologies have the potential to improve understanding of infectious microbes and the mechanisms by which they cause disease; the applications of these tools and approaches for disease detection and diagnostic platforms; and the development of new therapeutics, vaccines, and other infectious disease intervention technologies.
