"The advent of next-generation sequencing and emerging technologies for DNA fabrication will provide lower-cost solutions to the limiting problem of reading and writing genetic programs. To capitalize on this technological potential, new approaches to design, analysis, and debugging are required. Ultimately, the combination of these developments will enable new applications in genetic engineering such as cellular therapeutics, new materials, and sustainable bioenergy and chemical production. I will describe our efforts to identify new design principles in synthetic biology, construct therapeutic bacteria and genetic manipulation systems, and computationally encapsulate engineering knowledge to predict better genetic designs and quantify risk."
