synthetic biology

Definitions

from Wiktionary, Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License

  • n. The application of genetic engineering to generate modified or even completely new forms of life. Distinguished from older methods of transgenics by the use of either outright synthesised DNA or DNA which has been modified heavily to become more predictable and standardised. A heavy focus on modular design of genetic "parts" makes synthetic biology more of an engineering discipline than a form of pure science.
