Synthetic biology manipulations in 3D printed wet-ware

Leroy Cronin

Abstract

In our laboratory we have been developing new approaches to discover the 'transition-to-evolvability' in chemistry. This is because we can discover or engineer an abiotic system that can evolve (we could define this as an inorganic chemical cell -ICHELL) we might be able to suggest that synthetic biology can exist in many chemical forms, of which the terrestrial biology found on planet earth is one subset.

Keywords: synthetic biology, flow systems, fluidics, 3d printing, protein expression, cell free, gene transfer.
