  • Synthetic biology: from bacteria to stem cells

    Synthetic biology is revolutionizing how we conceptualize and approach the engineering of biological systems. Recent advances in the field are allowing us to expand beyond the construction and analysis of small gene networks towards the implementation of complex multicellular systems with a variety of applications. We have developed an integrated computational/experimental approach to engineering complex behavior in living systems ranging from bacteria to stem cells. In our research, we appropriate useful design principles from electrical engineering and other well established fields. These principles include abstraction, standardization, modularity, and computer aided design. But we also spend considerable effort towards understanding what makes synthetic biology different from all other existing engineering disciplines and discovering new design and construction rules that are effective for this unique discipline.

  • Independence among synthetic genetic devices in the bacterium Escherichia coli extends to the time-domain

    Engineering biology in a direct, systematic manner is limited today. The ability to build biological systems from components that act independent of one another has the potential to make the forward engineering of biology practical. Previously, we have shown that independence among synthetic genetic devices is possible in Escherichia coli under steady-state conditions. Here, we show that independence is also possible under transient conditions, suggesting that the ability of biological systems to exhibit linear behavior is not contextually-dependent. Furthermore, the green fluorescent protein part was once again observed to be the most nonlinear in the model system. This suggests it may not be well suited for characterization purposes irrespective of the context.

  • The potential role of synthetic biology in manufacturing of regenerative medicine

    In this paper, many challenges remain in bringing regenerative medicine to the mass market; safety, efficacy,reproducibility and affordability of such therapies are some of the considerations. This review explores the possible roles that synthetic biology may be able to play in overcoming some of these challenges.

  • A data model for biopart datasheets

    The Synthetic Biology Information System (SynBIS) developed at the Imperial College Centre for Synthetic Biology and Innovation (CSynBI) is using the data model here introduced is data model to disseminate the data obtained from our automatised characterisation pipeline. A very important feature of the data model that will be enhanced in the next version is the specification of protocols. As part of our current API, we provide a static view of the main properties of the experimental protocol. However, it is clear that the data currently returned to SynBIS are not comprehensive enough to reproduce a characterization experiment without extra information (we currently provide via a link to a human-readable text document). Our objective for the next version is, therefore, to upgrade to a more comprehensive description of a protocol to enable full reproducibility. With a similar motivation, we are also building on this work to develop a standard specification for analysis protocols. This will facilitate the input of standard experimental data (e.g. encoded as DICOM-SB), together with a standard description of the experimental protocol, to output a unique version of a datasheet - with full reproducibility and platform independence. The CSynBI is also working with other institutions aiming to better understand the data they produce, enhance the present model accordingly (and potentially produce new official DICOM-SB and SBOL extensions) and automate the incorporation of the data they produce into SynBIS.

  • Development of a Bacillus subtilis cell-free transcription-translation system

    Cell-free transcription-translation systems were originally conceived as foundational tools to understand the fundamentals of molecular biology, cellular biochemistry and also for in vitro protein production. More recently, synthetic biology is enabling these systems to be used within a systematic design context for prototyping DNA regulatory elements, genetic logic circuits and cell-free metabolic engineering. The Gram-positive soil bacterium, Bacillus subtilis, is an established model organism of biotechnological importance yet, there are few reports of B. subtilis cell-free transcription- translation systems and those that have been reported were largely encumbered by endogenous cell extract protease activity and/or the availability of inefficient cell-free energy systems. To this end, we developed several B. subtilis-based cell-free systems to be applied towards regulatory element prototyping.

  • All It Takes Is Vision: Synthetic Biology Opens the Doors to Vast Possibilities: \"Ideas Just Pop Into Your Head\"

    Traditional genetic engineering has for several decades enabled the cutting and pasting of DNA from one place to another, allowing for all kinds of developments: giving bacteria the ability to make insulin, making crops pesticide-resistant, and increasing the size of food animals, to name but a few.

  • Designing feedback control in biology for robustness and scalability

    In order to achieve its vast potential as a rigorous engineering discipline, Synthetic Biology requires a design framework that produces reliable and scalable biomolecular devices that can be combined into systems with sophisticated computational capabilities. Current biosynthetic systems are characterised by high levels of uncertainty and very limited re-usability of designs in different contexts, often leading to design failures in vivo. Below, we summarise the work we are undertaking to address the challenges of robustness, reliability, and scalability. We use tools adapted from nonlinear robust control theory to model and design synthetic biomolecular systems that exploit feedbacks at various scales, or layers, of biological organisation. For a detailed review of previous literature on the use of feedback control in synthetic biology.

  • Synthetic biology biosensors for healthcare and industrial biotechnology applications

    Synthetic biology offers many opportunities for biosensor development and design as simple POCT devices or in complex industrial biotechnology processes. The common themes in biosensor development for different uses are the identification of component parts, characterisation with respect to dynamic range, specificity, and signal-to-noise ratio, and ease of use.

  • Visualizing Genetic Circuits Using Concepts Borrowed from Electronics

    Biology features genetic circuits that are analogous to electronic circuits. A major goal of synthetic biology is the engineering of new genetic circuits. Inspired by electronic circuit diagrams, this paper proposes a means of representing these genetic circuits that facilitates analysis and effectively communicates circuit properties.

  • Connecting biochemistry and elelctronics with artifical allosteric protein biosensors

    The idea that biological systems can be built from standard components is the central tenet of Synthetic Biology. Although proteins control most of real time information and energy flow in a cell, our ability to create protein- based switches and thereon based circuits is woefully underdeveloped. We addressed this by developing a generally applicable strategy for converting constitutively active enzymes into allosterically controlled switches. This was achieved by constructing chimeric enzymes where the enzymatically active part is fused with a conformational switch. We demonstrated that such basic signaling units could be compiled into higher order biosensor systems capable of detecting potentially any analyte. Specifically using this approach we constructed electrochemical and optical biosensors specific to ions, small molecule drugs and proteins.
