Title: Synthetic Biology Continues to Heat Up

Synthetic Biology Continues to Heat Up
  • Human Beings Also Want to Be the Creators.

  • Human beings have always been difficult to
    suppress the inner impulses to be the Creators
    while exploring the origin of life. One hundred
    years ago, the French chemist Stephane Leduc was
    inspired by synthetic organic chemistry and then
    became the first person to create the word
    synthetic biology. Along with the development
    of genomics, systematic biology and some other
    relevant disciplines, researches on synthetic
    biology are constantly forward.  

  • As the name suggests, synthetic biology is to
    redesign and transform the current biological
    system by using some synthetic methods.
    Furthermore, the progresses of genomics and
    related disciplines have promoted the advance of
    synthetic biology to a large degree.
  • To be more general, genomics brings massive
    genetic information and high-throughput genomic
    technologies, which leads scientific researches
    into the era of systematic and synthetic biology.
    And it makes a revolutionary effect on industrial
    biotechnology as well.

  • As a professor from the University of California,
    Berkeley, Jay Keasling has said that synthetic
    biology will probably create a rapid development
    in modern biotechnology industry 2.0, just like
    genetic engineering. Professor Chen Guoqiang,
    from the School of Life Science of Tsinghua
    University, also pointed out that synthetic
    biology has shown a way for the future that can
    improve the potential competitiveness of
    industrial biotechnology, reduce the cost of
    biopharmaceuticals and create the possibility of
    modified organisms.

  • Meanwhile, under the support of venture
    investment, a group of small and medium-sized
    biotech companies have begun to create a large
    number of new platfoem chemicals, as well as some
    biosynthetic methods of pharmaceutical compounds.
    In addition, they have also developed some
    appropriate bio-manufacturing technologies.

  • Certainly, it is true that China has also payed
    an important role in such issue. In this way,
    various Chinese goverment departments should
    concern more about the development of synthetic
    biology. With the support from a series of
    sectors, the development of synthetic biology
    will step into a new era. However, diverse
    problems and difficulties still exist because
    people know little about the biological

  • To be brief, despite of a large number of
    challenges, biological field has gained great
    achievements in recent years. Additionally,
    compared with other technologies, such field also
    possesses huge potential. Taking into account of
    all the current realities, many experts still
    hold the opinion that it is possible to make
    greater success in the realm of synthetic
