Case studies

Synthetic biologists” apply computer-aided design and engineering to living organisms. The aim is to redesign existing biological organisms and even to create entirely new ones. Synthetic biology is “extreme genetic engineering” and its goal is to derive commercially-valuable compounds from novel living organisms rather than from conventional sources (e.g., crops, petroleum). The overall aim of synthetic biology is to simplify biological engineering by applying engineering principles and designs—which emanate from electronic engineering and computer engineering—to biology.

Plant Synthetic Biology Case Studies -   Case Studies  on Use of Synthetic Biology Replacements

  •  The ‘Glowing Plant project’ began as a great  project to engineer the thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana) to emit light, using synthetic variants of genes from fireflies and jellyfish.

  • At least two companies are focusing R&D efforts on producing a sandalwood oil fragrance using synthetic biology: Netherlands-based Isobionics, which spun off from DSM in 2008, has a syn bio derived sandalwood under development. Evolva expects to put its santalol fragrance on the market in 2017.

  •   SYNTHCELLS aims to bio-engineer minimal cellular constructs with applications including bioreactors and drug delivery systems.

  •   Working on the synthesis of oligosaccharides from E. coli, chemicals which are used to create many pharmaceuticals.
