Bacteria The groups in this research theme are developing the foundational tools for synthetic biology and using these to generate innovative biological applications for cutting-edge research, healthcare and industry. The scientific research goals are to establish an engineering framework for the design and optimisation of new synthetic biology parts, devices and systems, and in tandem apply synthetic biology to develop a wide range of novel biotechnologies. Along with our research and development of synthetic biology, we also integrate our science with emerging ethical, legal and societal issues to responsibly mature this powerful new technology.
