News: Synthetic biology leading to specialty chemicals
Glaser, J. News: Synthetic biology leading to specialty chemicals. CLEAN TECHNOLOGIES AND ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY. Springer-Verlag, New York, NY, 18(4):983-989, (2016).
This news column aspires to cover recent literature relating to the development and understanding of clean technology.
Synthetic biology can combine the disciplines of biology, engineering, and chemistry productively to form molecules of great scientific and commercial value. Recent advances in the new field are explored for their connection to new tools that have been used to elucidate production pathways to a wide variety of chemicals generated by microorganisms. The selection and enhancement of microbiological strains through the practice of strain engineering enables targets of design, construction, and optimization.
