Assembly of nano-machines mimics human muscle

Assembly of nano-machines mimics human muscle | Synthetic biology | Scoop.it

For the first time, an assembly of thousands of nano-machines capable of producing a coordinated contraction movement extending up to around ten micrometers, like the movements of muscular fibers, has been synthesized by a CNRS team from the Institut Charles Sadron.

Genetically engineered microbes make their own fertilizer, could feed the world’s poorest

Genetically engineered microbes make their own fertilizer, could feed the world’s poorest | Synthetic biology | Scoop.it

Industrial fertilizers help feed billions of people every year, but they remain beyond the reach of many of the world’s poorest farmers. Now, researchers have engineered microbes that, when added to soil, make fertilizer on demand, producing plants that grow 1.5 times larger than crops not exposed to the bugs or other synthetic fertilizers. The advance, reported here this week at a meeting of the American Chemical Society, could help farmers in the poorest parts of the world increase their crop yields and combat chronic malnutrition.

How Synthetic Biology Transforms Sugar to Save Lives and the Planet

How Synthetic Biology Transforms Sugar to Save Lives and the Planet | Synthetic biology | Scoop.it

Visit the lab at bioscience company Amyris, and the smell of yeast could kick-start a craving for beer, pizza, or both. But upon further investigation, the robot busily plating yeast colonies clearly won’t yield any delicious rewards for a Pavlovian response.

‘Rewired’ cells show promise for targeted cancer therapy

‘Rewired’ cells show promise for targeted cancer therapy | Synthetic biology | Scoop.it

A major challenge in truly targeted cancer therapy is cancer’s suppression of the immune system. Northwestern University synthetic biologists now have developed a general method for “rewiring” immune cells to flip this action around.

How to Hack a Cell 

How to Hack a Cell  | Synthetic biology | Scoop.it

The human body is made up of trillions of cells, microscopic computers that carry out complex behaviors according to the signals they receive from each other and their environment. Synthetic biologists engineer living cells to control how they behave by converting their genes into programmable circuits. A new study published by Assistant Professor Wilson Wong (BME) in Nature Biotechnology outlines a new simplified platform to target and program mammalian cells as genetic circuits, even complex ones, more quickly and efficiently.

Illuminating the dark corners of nature’s nitrogen cycle by mimicking rocket-fuel-producing bacteria  | Synthetic biology | Scoop.it

In areas known as the ocean’s shadow zones, where oxygen is as its lowest saturation in seawater, certain bacteria have the metabolic ability to form nitrogen gas by combining ammonia and nitrite. These bacteria, known as anaerobic ammonia oxidation (anammox) bacteria, play a critical role in the biosphere’s hugely important nitrogen cycle and the substantial nitrogen losses observed in marine environments.
