Abstract

Synthetic biology is a young scientific discipline which started to develop in the last ten years. It is complementary to and interdependent with systems biology. It uses methods from different scientific disciplines like mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, computer sciences and engineering. Its goal is to make new life forms or to change existing living systems and thus introduce some novel functions into biological organism. Because of this, it is very sensitive to questions of bioethics, biosafety and biosecurity. Its applications are vast, but it is mostly used for creating new biofuels and drugs. In the second part of this seminar I described different applications of synthetic biology in the fields of synthetic gene circuits, synthetic metabolic networks, synthetic genomics and finally, the iGEM competition in synthetic biology for students from all around the world.
