Center for Synthetic Biology > Research
The aim of the research in synthetic biology is to develop and produce artificial biological systems with new tailored characteristics, allowing the production of e.g. personalised medicine and sustainable energy.
The research focus on synthetic biology with a starting point in membrane bound proteins that make up the basic processes of life - from photosynthesis to the maintenance of electrical potential across a cellular membrane. In addition to the health, nature, and life sciences research within synthetic biology, an important part of the Center for Synthetic Biology's project is to clarify the philosophical and ethical aspects of synthetic biology.
