Components for Advanced Biological EngineeringView all sessions
Measuring and building are fundamental to all successful engineering endeavours. Synthetic biology provides an engineering approach and new technologies e.g. DNA synthesis and DNA assembly tools for constructing novel biological systems. Effective engineering requires a system of measurements that are focused on delivering the specific types of information needed for design of functional systems. In order to be successful synthetic biology needs an appropriate system of measurements that can inform and support the needs of biological circuit designers.
