Cells respond to intracellular and environmental cues through complex regulatory gene networks. Using synthetic biology approaches, researchers recreate these natural gene networks to discover their roles in disease and to find new drug candidates.

In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist’s Creative Services Team, Mads Kaern and Gerry Wright will discuss the history of engineered gene networks and how synthetic biology can accelerate drug discovery.

Topics to be covered 

  • Exploring the history of synthetic gene circuit design over the last 25 years 
  • Employing sequencing and synthetic biology platforms to discover new microbial natural products with antibiotic activity
