synthetic biology

Highly efficient, low-cost method developed to reduce DNA errors

Moreover, large-scale synthesis of DNA via such replication is a cornerstone of synthetic biology. However, just like the way we write or type an article, this…

"Make two out of one" – Division of Artificial Cells

The success of life on earth is based on the amazing ability of living cells to divide themselves into two daughter cells. During such a division process, the…

Switch-in-a-cell electrifies life

Scientists at Rice University have developed synthetic protein switches to control the flow of electrons.

Biological signalling processes in intelligent materials

Scientists from the University of Freiburg have developed materials systems that are composed of biological components and polymer materials and are capable of…

Designer cells: artificial enzyme can activate a gene switch

Nature relies on enzymes to accelerate energy-intensive biochemical reactions that are necessary for the preservation of life. However, natural enzymes are not…

New sustainable production method could advance plastics and pharmaceuticals

Led by Hal Alper, professor in the McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering in the Cockrell School of Engineering, the team's new method involves engineering…

First-of-its-kind chemical oscillator offers new level of molecular control

Researchers have created chemical amplifiers and a chemical oscillator using a systematic method that has the potential to embed sophisticated circuit…

Designer biosensor can detect antibiotic production by microbes

Macrolides are a group of naturally occurring small molecules that can have antibiotic, antifungal or anticancer effects. The antibiotic erythromycin is one…

Pause to read the traffic sign: regulation of DNA transcription in bacteria

One of the central tenets of biology is that information flows from DNA to RNA in order to encode proteins, which function in the cell. Arguably just as…

Otto Hahn Medal for Jaime Agudo-Canalejo

The supramolecular architecture of the living cell is based, to a large extent, on fluid membranes that consist of bilayers of lipid molecules. These membranes…
