Synthetic Biology is an emerging, trans-disciplinary field at the intersection between many engineering and scientific disciplines such as biology, chemical engineering, chemistry, electrical engineering, and computer science.

This section of the Synthetic Biology Collection details papers related to biological parts.

Articles in the Synthetic Biology Collection are presented in order of publication date and new articles will be added as they are published. PLOS welcome submissions in this field.
