Construct Version

Synthetic biology uses molecular methods to construct DNA-based devices to perform novel functions. Synthetic biologists design, model, and construct biological parts, devices and systems by engineering and modifying existing biological systems. For instance, synthetic biologists can produce microbes that make useful chemicals. Synthetic biology gives scientists the tools to build biological devices from smaller biological units in much the same way as an engineer constructs a building from smaller construction materials. Synthetic biology has the potential to develop technologies that could lead the way in the 21st century.


Create Version

Synthetic biology uses molecular methods to create modified living organisms that have never existed before. These DNA-based devices perform new functions not found in nature. Synthetic biologists redesign and modify existing, natural biological systems. For instance, synthetic biologists can create new versions of microbes that make chemicals not naturally found in microbes. In many ways, synthetic biology allows scientists to redesign biological processes and create organisms not found in nature. Synthetic biology has the potential to develop technologies that could lead the way in the 21st century.

Edinburgh iGEM 2006http://2009.igem.org/Team:HKU-HKBU/Assembly#Step_6._Using_the_Speed_Controller

Awards: Best Real World Application, Best Poster


Poison Waterhttp://2009.igem.org/Team:HKU-HKBU/Assembly#Step_6._Using_the_Speed_Controller

  • Arsenic poisoning affects 100 million people

  • Serious in Bangladesh

    • Wells tap sedimentary layer with Arsenic

    • 1 in 4 wells contaminated

  • Testing methods expensive, require instruments and expertise


Range of Outputshttp://2009.igem.org/Team:HKU-HKBU/Assembly#Step_6._Using_the_Speed_Controller

  • If no arsenic is present: Urease raises the pH to 9-10

  • If 5 ppb arsenic is present: Repressor shuts down Urease, pH remains neutral, pH 7

  • If 20 ppb arsenic is present: LacZ produced, pH 4.5
