Synthetic Biology Collection
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, or computer science.
The Collection has been organized into broad categories focused on DNA synthesis and assembly techniques, the development of libraries for biological parts, the use of synthetic biology in protein engineering applications, work focussing on synthetic life and multicellular systems and the engineering of gene regulatory networks and metabolic pathways. Finally, we include sections that describe enabling technologies such as software and modeling, along with new instrumentation.
Articles in the Synthetic Biology Collection are presented in order of publication date and new articles will be added as they are published. PLOS welcomes submissions in this field.
