"Last post I mentioned an interesting research introducing RNA interfere system in bacterium and archaea. It gives a new sight into how similarities the three kingdoms share, and potentially what have been done in mammalian cells can be applied into E.coli to enrich the toolbox of synthetic biologists.
Today let’s take a glimpse at what is on earth the progress in mammalian synthetic biology world. Is the bio-system as feasible to engineer as E.coli, just like iGEM? Is the field quite matured enough? Or still long way to go?..."
