Synthetic biology is engineering and manipulating biomolecular systems and cellular capabilities. This involves the construction of the biological systems from the minute functional unit to the functional cellular level. Synthetic biology is the engineering of biology: the synthesis of complex, biologically based (or inspired) systems which display functions that do not exist in nature. This engineering perspective may be applied at all levels of the hierarchy of biological structures – from individual molecules to whole cells, tissues and organisms. In essence, synthetic biology will enable the design of ‘biological systems’ in a rational and systematic way.
Synthetic biology is of two types which one using unnatural molecules to reproduce natural behavior and the other interchanges the parts from one system to another to ultimately assembled resulting in a unnatural function.
