Illuminating the dark corners of nature’s nitrogen cycle by mimicking rocket-fuel-producing bacteria 

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.

Researchers create synthetic cells to isolate genetic circuits | Synthetic biology | Scoop.it

MIT researchers have demonstrated that synthetic biology circuits can be isolated within individual synthetic cells, preventing unwanted interference from the environment or each other. This could make it easier to design genetic circuits that act as sensors or produce complex drugs or other useful molecules.
